Marchesa designs bunny costume for Playboy launch

Marchesa has created a one-off version of the iconic Playboy bunny costume to mark the launch of the new Playboy Club London.

Marchesa designers, Brits Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, created the unique design based on the original costume worn by Bunny Girls worldwide, to which they added signature Marchesa touches.

Marchesa co-founder and designer Georgina Chapman said: "Marchesa is thrilled to be a part of the Playboy London Club launch, and for the opportunity to design a one off Playboy Bunny costume – one of fashion and pop culture’s most iconic emblems, in celebration of the return of this club.

"We’ve taken our inspiration from the original costume but added Marchesa’s signature details, such as hand draping and embroidery, while staying true to the Playboy Bunny’s classic corset silhouette. The result is a modern, yet feminine interpretation of this legendary look."

The bespoke design will be unveiled at an exclusive press preview of the Playboy Club London, taking place on May 26, 2011, after which it will be auctioned to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

The Playboy Club London opens on June 4, 2011, at 14, Old Park Lane, London.
