NYC Fashion Week… the shows, the people, the parties! The city is the epicenter of culture and style and when the fashion community descends upon it, it comes alive! Marissa Collections loves this time of year when it can be shared in the fabulous company of good friends. Our most recent trip was highlighted by the Marchesa Spring/ Summer 2011 Presentation Marissa attended with the gorgeous chairwomen of our Nashville event, Johnna Watson and Janet Bentz. The delicate and beautifully crafted works of art by the two talented designers behind Marchesa, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, were not on a catwalk per the usual which gave NYC Fashion Week a sense of repose in a normally hectic environment. The models stood as muses on pedestals at the Chelsea Art Museum and gave us all fantasies of slipping on architectural laser cut gowns and dreams of chiffon that looked as light as air, held to this earth by jeweled armor. After such an event it only seemed right to celebrate, and the star-studded after bash at The Standard Hotel was just what the doctor ordered. Photos were snapped of celebs like Kelly Osbourne and Molly Sims while sipping champagne in the company of Tyne Daley and Harvey Weinstein. We took a few moments with the designers to express our delight about the upcoming Nashville event. We are all too excited about the Marchesa presentation to benefit the Nashville Symphony Orchestra at Schermerhorn Center on April 26th, 2011. Also not to miss are the trunk shows at Spaces in Nashville with Marchesa and Erickson Beamon on October 27th and 28th as well as on the 27th and 28th of April with Irene Neuwirth. Many Thanks to Johnna Watson and Janet Bentz! We’ll see you in Music City! For Tickets or to RSVP to the event please call Stacie Taylor at 615.748.4788.
