This included freelance printmaking at Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana. 

In 2004, Craig and Chapman launched Marchesa which is named after socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati. Investors of the brand include Giuseppe Cipriani and Steven C. Witkoff. In 2006, the label was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s top ten finalists. 

Craig married her boyfriend of the past 11 years, Piers North on 5 July 2008. On Spetember 2009 Craig gave birth to her daughter, Delilah.

Compared with the ornate confections Chapman and Craig are best known for, though, these resort dresses are downright minimal. Craig is handling  the retail side and concentrates on details. Marchesa is for girlie girls, all grown up and swathed in white ostrich-plume dresses tied with black satin sashes.
