The English designers, who are partnering with Stella Artois and Water.org for the “Buy A Lady A Drink” campaign to support the end of the global water crisis, are “big fans” of the royal mom-of-two and her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Georgina admitted, “I remember so clearly Princess Diana’s wedding and that just being such a monumental occasion in my childhood. I had the edition book and as a kid I used to go through it and study the pages.” While the Duchess of Cambridge has yet to step out in a gown by Marchesa, Keren and Georgina exclaimed, “We would love to dress her.”

As for how they define a true princess gown, Georgina said, “I think it really is how a woman feels inside when she puts something on. I think if you feel good and you feel confident then you retain a certain aura that gives you that regal edge.” The designers’ most recent collection, which drew inspiration from Imperial China, is sure to make any woman feel like royalty. Keren and Georgia showcased their breathtaking 2017 fall/winter collection on Wednesday, February 15. The designers brought opulence to life with their colorful metallic embroideries, velvet bows and tulle creations, fit every bit for a princess, like Kate.
