Marchesa For Spires and Pagodas

Although Marchesa's fall/winter 2008 collection paid subtle tribute to Queen Elizabeth I, the complex detailing and pronounced structure of the collection reminded Trendinista of tapering spires and tiered pagodas found on temples and sanctuaries. To help others see the resemblance, each gown was paired up next to an image of an architectural masterpiece.

Implications - According to Nicole Phelps of, "There was a new structure to these clothes. Take the stunning black dress with an hourglass shape so sculpturally defiant, it evoked armor. Anybody who wore it would be paparazzi-proof." There is a glamorous element to this collection that everyone from everyday, average adults to celebrities will be absolutely dying for.
