They’re well into the 60’s now. The art direction on this show is amazing. From the wall paper to the dresses, it’s all so authentic, I just love it. Last night Don Draper’s new wife wore the most amazing dress. Here’s a shot of it. Janie Bryant, the costume designer spoke about it on the amc website. It’s a vintage dress, they remade the sleeves in chiffon because they had deteriorated, the chiffon is accordion pleated but you can’t tell on tv or in the images. It was beautifully fitted and just gorgeous on Megan. I adjusted the brightness in the images below to show more of the lines in the dress. It’s a classic! A perfect cocktail dress!
I recently received an invitation designed in the most interesting font. When I researched it, I found that it was set in Bernhard Fashion. This font was designed in 1929 and has very distinct characters. It was used in it’s original style. It’s a font I’ve had for many years, but I don’t recall ever using it.
With the success of “The Artist” at the Oscars last night and the invitation, I’m wondering if the roaring 20’s style is back in fashion?
