Georgina Chapman (born January 1, 1976) is an English fashion designer and actress. Chapman, alongside Keren Craig, an actress and a former model, are the co-founders of fashion label Marchesa.

Chapman is the daughter of Brian Chapman, millionaire businessman and owner of the organic coffee company, Percol. She grew up in Richmond, West London and at age 13, started a band called Jesus and Mary Jane. In college she lived in a Shepherd's Bush flat, where she remained until recently with her dog, Rocky.[1] In her twenties, Chapman modeled in Head & Shoulders and Soothers ads.

Chapman met future partner Keren Craig, while they were both students at Chelsea College of Art and Design.[2] Chapman graduated from Wimbledon School of Art in 2001 and began her career as a costume designer. Also after school Chapman appeared in various television shows and films.

In 2004, she and Craig launched Marchesa which is named after socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati.[2] Investors of the brand include Giuseppe Cipriani and Steven C. Witkoff.[1] In 2006, the label was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund's top ten finalists.[3]

Chapman started dating Harvey Weinstein in December 2004 when he left his first wife. They married on December 15, 2007 in Connecticut. Weinstein is a co-founder of Weinstein Co. and Miramax and is twenty-three years older than Chapman. The couple split their time between a West Village townhouse, a seafront home in Westport, Connecticut and a mansion in Los Angeles.

In 2008 Chapman and Craig designed the wedding dress of footballer Wayne Rooney's fiancée Coleen for £100,000.[4]
