Marchioness is an independent fashion publication, digital platform and community, aspiring to praise contrarian heroines of fashion, film and art and bring their glory, strength and rebelliousness to the forefront. The anti-heroines that inspire Marchioness take on the world with no shame and defy patriarchal expectations through their stories, words and actions - and they do it all with brilliant style. Leave mainstream fashion where it belongs (with last season’s Prada), light a cherry-cola cigarette and lose yourself in our irreverent vision of femininity and fangirling.
