On Tuesday 13th September, Clothes on Film makes its debut on U.S. television. Specifically, site editor Chris Laverty chats about the amazing costume design of Boardwalk Empire for a documentary entitled ‘The Money Decade’ at 9.45 pm on HBO (may differ for regional variations).
Of course we do not want to blow our own trumpet too much, but this was surely worth a mention. Tune in if you can. It is actually an interesting programme covering Burlesque, the Jazz era and fashion trends of the early 1920s. Apart from Clothes on Film, you will find contributions from Boardwalk Empire costume designers John Dunn & Lisa Padovani, in addition to a few other folk who really know their stuff.
If you miss the show, don’t fret (as if you would); we will upload a YouTube link soon. Also, there is more to come with an expanded version of The Money Decade for Boardwalk Empire’s upcoming DVD box set. Roll on whenever the release date may be.
Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire begins in the U.S. on 25th September and in the UK on 8th October.
