POST GRAD CRUSH: GEORGINA CHAPMAN

Hi Georgina, can I be you?

If you are unfamiliar with Ms. Chapman, get ready. Former rocker and model turned head designer of Marchesa, this woman is a one of my icons. While I have always loved Marchesa gowns, after watching this season of Project Runway All-Stars, my respect for Georgina has grown immensely. On the show, she always has insightful comments about the contestants designs and never puts them down. She points out what doesn't work, what they could have done better, and all in a marvelous English accent. Tonight Bravo aired a special on Marchesa and Georgina, discussing the business and their designs. Keren Craig, the other brilliant half of the label, is a textile designer while Georgina handles the design work. Hand in hand, they create ethereal, detailed, jaw-dropping gowns. Oh, and Georgina is married to Harvey Weinsten, hello power couple!

The detail in the gowns are incredible.





This. I want to get married in this.


Lucky for me, my dad promised he would pay Marchesa to make me a custom wedding gown... HA, what a funny joke.
