Ladies, the day of owning a beautiful MARCHESA dress might now be possible! Today I was delighted to read on VOGUE that Marchesa is launching a secondary line – at lower price points! We will probably still need to save for a year or two in order to have one hanging oh so elegantly in our wardrobe, BUT I believe we are one step closer of getting our mitts on a little bit of Marchesa! Grab your Boyfriend, force him to propose, and give Blake Lively a run for her money! The line is set to launch at the end of this year so don't panic you’ve still got plenty of time to plan that WILD hen do (and to upgrade that Haribo ring for a 'real' one).
The new affordable line will apparently feature daywear and accessories; I can’t wait to pop to Tesco attired in Marchesa head to toe (keep dreaming Kirsty).
Words from Co Designer Georgina Chapman:
"We have always had a vision for Marchesa to be a lifestyle brand," Chapman told WWD. "We have been very specific for eveningwear so far. We always had this dream that Marchesa could transcend into all different areas of lifestyle."
It pleases me to know that Georgina Chapman is passionate about connecting with people who simply can’t afford to pay thousands for a garment. Georgina & Keren have dreamt to reach out to different consumers; if their success and beautiful collections are anything to go by then it will definitely be a clothing line you won't want to miss! Good luck ladies and I will be waiting patiently to see the launch at the end of the year (the suspense is already killing me).
I will now leave you to admire some of their romantic slash breathtaking slash outrageously elegant garments...

After seeing these impeccable designs I hope you are now an excitable little bunny like myself!
Lots of Marchesa loving,
