Marchesa, founded by British-born talent Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, will embark on a collaboration with TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ forged on a likeminded philosophy that hair and wardrobe come together to complete a look.

It is fantastic how things have come full circle and I find myself working with them once again and in such an exciting capacity," said Georgina Chapman, Co-Founder of Marchesa.
For 10 years, Chapman and Craig have built their fashion empire around elegant eveningwear and one-of-a-kind couture designs.

Commencing their relationship at the Marchesa AW14 runway show during Fashion Week in New York, TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ styled the hair that graced the catwalk at the iconic New York Public Library. The hair designs were led by TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ Global Ambassador Mark Hampton, who worked with the Marchesa design duo to create signature looks inspired by the idea of a tribal, Scottish woman with rebellious and modern hair. The prestigious runway show, attended by A-List celebrities and fashion's elite, was enhanced by the enviable hairstyles, marking new trends for the AW14 season. "I love collaborating with designers to create a head-to-toe look that is not only beautiful, but also portrays the story that inspired the collection. Working on behalf of TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ and with Marchesa has been amazing. I'm proud of the hair we created for this show and honored to be working with such incredible designers," said Mark Hampton, Global Ambassador for TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™.

Visions of billowing bonfires sweeping through the Scottish highlands, Marchesa's AW14 collection is guided through an ombre of fiery flames and smoky fog. Bursts of teal, cinnamon, saffron and copper hues give way to silver, blush and cream.
THE HAIR LOOK
