First Sketches: Dramatic Dressing

First Sketches: Dramatic Dressing - student project

Dramatic Dressing.

Inspired by films, actresses and famous eras.

All this started with a recent visit to the Hollywood Costumes exhbition at ACMI in Melbourne and an encounter with the Atonement Green Dress and Marilyn's Dress from Seven Year Itch.

I've done a couple of sketches, but need some time and space to upload the images.  

For now, heres the inspiration.

Marilyn's Dress from Seven Year Itch. The material is actually more like a crepe. Love the waist detail!

And of course, Gatsby looks like it is going to have some amazing costumes ( I haven't seen it yet).
