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.
The Atonement Dress
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).
The shapes of Anna Karenina are just fascinating.
Carey Mulligan out of context, but with cherry trees.
Wild at Heart meets Hitchcock.
