Harvey Weinstein Puts Marchesa Fashion Brand In Tough Spot
The scandal-ridden producer is a fashion world fixture, and wife Georgina Chapman’s brand is a Hollywood red carpet mainstay. Now what?
Often seated next to Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Harvey Weinstein has been a front row fixture at wife Georgina Chapman’s Marchesa fashion shows for nearly a decade, and used his Hollywood connections early on in the label’s history to help place Marchesa gowns on A-list stars such as Sandra Bullock, Penelope Cruz, Renee Zellweger, Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez.
But now, fashion insiders are wondering how Marchesa, whose evening and bridal wear is often described as fairytale-like, can survive the nightmare association with the producer, who was fired by the Weinstein Company board on Sunday, following allegations first published in The New York Times that he has been sexually harassing women for decades, including actress Ashley Judd who was quoted in the story.
