  1. Odile was indeed the costume designer for the film but rather than design all the outfits, she opted to seek out authentic vintage dresses and accessories, dated circa 1961 for Rosamund and Carey. I know because I supplied some of the vintage garments for the film to include the pink chiffon dress shown here and the dress that Carey wears in the film's poster. I also supplied a gold lurex dress, that was designed by Ceil Chapman and another Chapman design, a navy linen dress with lace collar (both worn by Rosamund)as well as a couple of bags - laquered straw clutch and black shoulder bag, shoes and lingerie. I will be selling these garments in my Wimbledon Village, London UK shop ADvintaged.

  2. Hey fantastic!

    Thanks for all the info, it's great to have such insider gossip.

  3. I wish I could see this! Too bad I live all the way in Australia :(
    Is this still on? I can link to it from my blog post if it is.

  4. Sadly it was a temporary exhibit (but there for a couple of weeks) - that's why I took the pictures, to share with everyone else who couldn't make it :-)

  5. ah, I see. It does look gorgeous! thanks for sharing :)
