Spectacular couture will soon grace the runway during the Globe Guilder’s 29th Annual Fashion Show, Celebrating Couture 2019. Presented by Neiman Marcus, to benefit The Old Globe’s artistic and arts engagement programs and to support the impact the Globe makes in our community and across the nation. Neiman Marcus is producing a special treat this year of a rare exclusive for our audience —they will be privileged to be the first fashionistas to view the West Coast debut of fabulous couturier Marchesa’s 2019 Fall Couture Collection, following the initial show presented at New York Fashion Week.
Marchesa’s Fall 2019 collection was inspired by Scandinavian folk art, ranging from Rosemåling—a traditional form of decorative floral- and scroll-motif painting on wood, originating from Norway and Sweden—to the poetic and groundbreaking work of Karin Larsson (1859–1928). Married to painter Carl Larsson, Karin herself was an accomplished artist who, throughout her life, embraced and translated her contemporary culture into vibrant textiles, daring interior choices, bold colors, and beautiful plant and flower motifs. Bright yellow and green accents, and contrasting black and white in a variety of techniques—ranging from delicate threadwork lattice lace to oversized floral prints—mirror the eclectic traditions in hand-painted furniture, while delicate floral motifs reflect on Karin’s attention to detail and use of colors such as red, blue, and orange accents—and combinations of them all—in ornate scroll and floral threadwork embroideries.
