Here is some of my inspiration.
Clockwise from top left: 1 & 2 Kiera Knightley in The Duchess, 3 King Louis XVI in BBC2's series on The Palace of Versaille (if you didn't catch it it was really interesting and the costumes were incredible, here is the last episode, there are three), 4 & 5 Kiera Knightley and Johnny Depp in The Pirates of the Caribbean, 6 The new dramatic interpretation of Charles Dicken's novel Edwin Drood, 7 Jane Austen's Pride and Predjudice with Kiera Knightley (again!), 8,9 & 10 in Marie Antoinette.
Clockwise from top left: 1 Portrait, 2 & 3 Vive la Cocotte, 4 Planet Gaia (love the slouchy shape of this almost anti 18th century), 5 & 6 Les Femmes.
John Galliano for Christian Dior
You can see a little sketch I did based on the design second from left at the top here.
I'll be posting more about this project soon!
Hope you've enjoyed this feature, have you seen any 18th century inspired things that you love?
