Costume Stories: This Week, Look of Love and Man of Steel

This week’s world according to costume design.

Man of Steel

Superman’s cape was CGI for much of the movie. Makes sense when you think about it.

Look of Love

Stephanie Collie on recreating 1960s Soho. Fascinating for anyone who knows the time and/or setting.

Behind the Candelabra

Deirdre Clemente and Aisling O’Connor explain why Liberace’s costumes mattered, because they really did.

Beyond Gatsby

Typically engrossing DTSFT piece about interpreting the 1920s on film. Examples from Thoroughly Modern Millie, Chicago, Midnight in Paris…

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Costume design in the Indian film industry.


‘It felt like a natural extension’, Jill Ohannesson talks about her upcoming Revenge clothing line.

Living with a costume designer

Educational and painful, apparently.

The iconic moment

Michael Kaplan, Mark Bridges, Ellen Mirojnick and Jeffrey Kurland discuss favourite costumes from their own back catalogue and others. The panel is moderated by Laura Dern. There will be a screening of Vertigo afterwards. If you can go, GO.
