It’s been two years now I last wrote about Fashion and Furniture in films on my previous blog (http://luxhedera.livejournal.com/tag/fashion%20in%20films). I was living in Glasgow (UK) at the time and I got very obsessed with clothes and design. I fuelled my passion in various ways. One was to trail Glasgow through and through for hours in search for unusual items. From high-street shops to the darkest and oddest boutiques (oh the Watt Brothers!), I left no stone unturned.
The other was my DVD player that then became my ultimate weapon for inspiration. In November 2008, I started to integrate posts about fashion in movies after noticing I kept pausing/rewinding DVDs to get a better sight of a particular piece of clothing or furniture or even complete stage sets. I’m glad I did! I discovered incredible treasures…
My aim is really to pay tribute to all the genius costume designers of the film industry. For what I know of, it’s a difficult job that requires a myriad of skills. I often feel that they don’t get the praise they deserve squeezed between the catering team and the sound engineers while the end credits are rolling in tiny letters.
