THE DRESSMAKER

So over the last few weeks, I've been interested in these works; Crimson Peak for it's American gothic look, the BBC television series Musketeers for its hip 1630's look and The Dressmaker, for it's sumptous 1950s coutour fashion.  I enjoy learning how other costume designers approach the work, and  what they love most about the design process.
