The American artist who specialized in stage and film Tony Duquette was the main inspiration for the Resort 2018 Collection by Marchesa. For years Duquette turned empty spaces into out-of-this-world scenes. He always included elements of drama and lavish details in his work. The creative duo behind Marchesa Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were driven by Duquette’s motto “More is more” and they delivered a lavish and dramatic Resort 2018 collection.The collection is full of vivid colors, detailed embellishments, and interesting patterns.
The designers enriched the creations with beautiful 3D floral embellishments that added glamour to the collection. The heavily embellished gowns with 3D flowers reserved for red carpet moments and big celebrations are definitely the highlight of the collection.
It’s safe to say that the entire collection it’s all about the dresses. The surreal dresses radiate with femininity and sensuality. Marchesa truly understands the women’s need to feel glamorous and sophisticated.
The palette of the collection is rich with some of the season’s hottest colors. Chapman and Craig didn’t miss the chance to incorporate the infamous fuchsia color in their designs. The hot fuchsia color is a major trend both on the runways and in the beauty industry this season. Marchesa incorporated fuchsia-hued details in some of the designs and also created entire pieces in this color. The breath-taking voluminous gown in soft fuchsia color enriched with massive 3D floral decorations will turn heads whenever you show up. For less formal events there is the gorgeous off the shoulder midi dress with voluminous floral details wrapped around the shoulders.
Speaking of trending colors we already announced that the yellow hue is a major trend this summer. For those who would dare to wear this vivid color Marchesa created playful dresses with floral motives. The creative duo spiced up some of the dresses with cute ruffles and bows that add a girly note to the designs.
Some of Marchesa’s classics include nude elegant gowns decorated with beads and other details as well as long satin silk dresses in plain but effective colors.
Interesting moment in the Resort 2018 collection are the voluminous tulle gowns with ombre effect.
It’s safe to say that Marchesa made the perfect dress for every women in the Resort 2018 Collection. With so many choices it’s impossible not to fall in love with their latest designs.
