With dream like gowns, red-carpet worthy numbers and couture wedding dresses perfected, Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig will launch their first accessories colletion at New York Fashion Week this month.
Cue satin box clutches, jewel details, beading and embroidery worthy of any full length Marchesa gown.
'We had never done accessories' Georgina Chapman told WWD this morning, 'so we thought, lets approach it the way we approach a dress.'
The bags as you would expect coordinate perfectly with Marchesa gowns, but Chapman hopes they will be used far more often than when you need to dress up. 'Some people dont always have an occasion for a gown,' she says. 'You could wear these with jeans and a T-shirt'.
The collection will arrive in eveningwear departments and in accessory departments at key department stores next year.
Meanwhile Chapman is also working with British jeweller Stephen Webster to create a capsule collection of jewellery, separate to Marchesa accessories, which will also be unveiled this autumn.More
