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.

With her iconic 00s label, Luella Bartley shaped a fantastical world of frou-frou frills spiked with tomboy attitude and rock’n’roll references - defining the uniform of many of us today.

Self-confessed disciple Marianne Gallagher looks back at what these looks meant to her.
