Oh, the breathtaking dresses of Marchesa! Looking at these is like being transported into some kind of Couture mythology. There are the Cruela De Villes, in sculptural hand-painted gowns with sharp edges, and Roman Goddesses in white draped gauziness affixed with lattices of lace and jewels. The punched out lace fabrics are like intricate tablecloths from a lavish feast, whirled into dresses. Delicious!
