Clothes on Film talk exclusively to Emmy award winning costume designer Joan Bergin about her extraordinary work on The Tudors, discussing codpieces, modern day fashion influences, nipples and more. It’s video so you won’t even need your reading glasses.
The Tudors, or Dynasty with ruffs if you will, is a four season period drama series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as King Henry VIII, perhaps England’s most eligible monarch in history (on paper at least). His stunning clothes of silk brocade and leather were made by costume designer Joan Bergin (The Prestige). The sheer scale of the project was incredible, with cast of 110 and countless extras requiring, in Joan’s own words, ‘Tudorising’.
