The Man in the High Castle season one TV costumes on display...

Amazon Studios adaptation of Philip K. Dick's 1962 novel, The Man in the High Castle, presents us with an alternate history where the Axis powers of Germany and Japan won World War II and now split the rule of America in the 1960s in an uneasy alliance.

These costumes from the original scripted series were photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum on August 9, 2016. Audrey Fisher is the Costumer Designer responsible with creating the look of these alternate worlds of Nazi New York and Japanese-influenced San Francisco, with help from Assistant Costume Designer Koreen Heaver and Costume Supervisor Carole Griffin.

Owing it to her sister to deliver the film to The Man in the High Castle, which impossibly shows footage of the Allies winning WII, she meets Luke Kleintank's 'Joe Blake' on her travels (a secret SS double agent working with the resistance).

Meanwhile for some World War II inspired costumes, be sure to check out these Allied movie costumes, Keira Knightley's WWII nurse outfit from Atonement and these film costumes from The Imitation Game.
