Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein's estranged wife, shared several details about how her fashion brand, Marchesa, was doing after Weinstein’s sexual assault’s allegations.


During an interview made by Vogue, Chapman talked about the runway show for Marchesa, which was canceled in January. That decision made people believe that the fashion brand was going through a difficult situation.

Chapman confessed that she made that decision because she felt it was not appropriate given her husband’s situation. All women affected by him deserved respect and dignity, and not offering any clothes for award season was her way to give that to them.

She added that even though it has been ‘a time for mourning,’ others have supported her, including Scarlett Johansson, who wore a Marchesa gown for May’s Met Gala.


Her fashion company was not the only affected by Weinstein actions, though. Chapman admitted that she didn’t want to go out because she considered that it was disrespectful.

She also confessed to being very saddened about her children because she didn’t know how their life was going to be when people learned that their father was Harvey Weinstein, the man who sexually assaulted many women from the entertainment industry.

One of the aspects that made people criticize Marchesa was that they assumed that Weinstein made models and actress buy and wear their dresses at red carpet events, so the company kind of took advantage of Weinstein’s influence in the industry.


Neil Gaiman, Chapman’s close friend who was also present during the interview, revealed that actresses ‘absolutely had a push from Harvey,’ but that if the dresses weren’t that good, the brand wouldn’t have lasted this long

Gaiman added that Chapman is a true artist who impressed him with her work and her vision of fashion. Finally, Chapman made sure to set clear that she didn’t consider herself a victim.

She pointed out that many husbands in the world cheat on their wives on a daily basis, so what happened to her was not unique. Chapman sees herself as a woman going through a tough situation.
