Marchesa: feminine beauty, Fall 2010

There was plenty about Marchesa‘s Fall 2010 collection that fit perfectly within the label’s signature style. Long gowns entwined with ruffles, fluffy feathered skirts, and the mandatory injections of draping silk and tulle. But this time around there was also a strong selection of super-short playful (yet still phenomenally detailed) dresses that the current set of young socialites and starlets will no doubt be jumping all over as red carpet fare.

Best of all was the motif of shooting stars that worked into the pieces – an utterly amazing sheer dress that looked like it belonged on the lithe body of an Art Deco spelter figurine; and a tuxedo dress with uncharacteristically rocking over the knee boots and a hint of stars at the decolletage.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
