NEW YORK, N.Y. - Georgina Chapman studied costume design in college with the hope of one day seeing her creations in the movies. That dream took a slight turn when she launched the fashion label Marchesa in 2004 with partner Keren Craig. Now, their designs are frequently worn by actresses at red-carpet movie premieres and award ceremonies.

Chapman's love of cinema was recently renewed when she made her directorial debut with "A Dream of Flying," part of Canon's Project Imagination. It put movie cameras in the hands of Chapman, Eva Longoria and Jamie Foxx to develop short films based on photographs.
