For lots of pretty, floaty, fabulous frocks it is imperative that you swing by the Marchesa show during New York Fashion Week. Sticking two fingers to the economy was co-designer Georgina Chapman, who didn't disappoint in offering up an array of delicate whimsical creations for eveningwear. Fairytale-inspired red carpet gowns were aplenty in layered tulle and draped Grecian-style jersey. These filtered out into ruffled candy cocktail dresses and sparkly black and red minidresses, all tied up in a satin bow. As always it is a true pleasure to watch the fruits of Marchesa's labour, and take a moment to escape the realities of life. And with Sir Philip Green lurking around the room, one can't but help wonder whether we might see a Marchesa/Topshop collaboration in the future.
