St. Regis Hotels & Resorts has partnered with luxury fashion brand, Marchesa, to create four exclusive couture bridal gowns.
The ultra-luxury hospitality brand St. Regis has always been a beloved destination for weddings around the world. Drawing inspiration from some of the St. Regis brand’s most iconic urban and resort destinations St. Regis Connoisseurs Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the co-founders of fashion house Marchesa, unveiled a capsule collection with four one-of-a-kind bridal gowns. The St. Regis brand’s partnership with Chapman and Craig developed organically after Marchesa showed its bridal collection at The St. Regis New York during New York International Bride Week in October 2014.
Those who purchase one of the bridal gowns will be invited to Marchesa’s atelier for a personal fitting with) Chapman and Craig, followed by a stay at the legendary The St. Regis New York.
The Marchesa designers drew inspiration from the customs and culture of each locale so that each dress design connotes a unique sense of place. They then began sketching and draping silhouettes, experimenting with fabrics and thinking about design elements that would resonate with each destination.
The Mumbai design features an intricate-engineered, embroidered lace bodice with crystal and pearl embroidery with gold accents. It is a regal dress with traditional Indian beading, which also captures a modern lightness with the pleated tulle skirt overlay atop a Chantilly lace column skirt.
The design for New York is much more architectural, with a nod to the 1950s. The gown features a cathedral train with 3D-threadwork embroidery and crystal and pearl beading over silk duchess satin.
The Dubai-inspired dress channels the fashion-forward, vibrant city into a gown with a slim silhouette and dramatic long sleeve. It features ornate rose gold threadwork and a silk duchess satin fishtail skirt, fully beaded with clear crystals and pearls.
The resort setting of Punta Mita inspired a design that embraces a more relaxed aesthetic in-tune with a beach wedding. The dress features soft 3D-lace floral and threadwork embroidery with flowing tulle.
Each dress from Marchesa Bridal capsule collection will range from USD $20,000 – $50,000.
