St. Regis Hotels & Resorts with its stunning properties, set in idyllic locales are not surprisingly a popular choice among brides, when it comes to choosing a wedding venue. Keeping their brides in mind, the ultra-luxury hospitality brand, which is part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts has revealed four one-of-a-kind bridal gowns designed by St. Regis Connoisseurs Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, the co-founders of fashion house Marchesa. The Marchesa Bridal Capsule Collection for St. Regis Hotels & Resorts draws inspiration from some of the St. Regis brand’s iconic urban and resort destinations – namely New York, Dubai, Punta Mita and Mumbai.
Each dress will range from $20,000 – $50,000 and brides who choose one of these 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 wedding gowns are now available at stregis.com/marchesa,
“St. Regis has always been a beloved destination for weddings around the world, and we are thrilled to offer brides yet another way to make their day truly beyond expectation,” said Jim Petrus, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts.
The Marchesa designers drew inspiration from the customs and culture of each locale so that each dress design connotes a unique sense of place. The Mumbai design features an intricate-engineered, embroidered lace bodice with crystal and pearl embroidery, gold accents and traditional Indian beading, which captures a modern lightness with the pleated tulle skirt overlay atop a Chantilly lace column skirt.
The design for New York is architectural and reminiscent of 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, with a gown featuring 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 is relaxed and aesthetic in-tune with a beach wedding. The dress features soft 3D-lace floral and thread-work embroidery with flowing tulle.
The St. Regis brand’s partnership with Chapman and Craig took shape after Marchesa showcased their bridal collection at The St. Regis New York during the New York International Bride Week in October 2014. Together, with renowned polo player Nacho Figueras and fashion designer Jason Wu, this elite group of St. Regis Connoisseurs strengthens St. Regis as an authority in style and design, philanthropy, and speed and sport, passions of the St.Regis brand’s global clientele.
