Alice in Fashionland
Over the weekend I saw Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Not only was the film fantastic but the costume design was a-maz-ing! My eyes were watering at every change of thread Alice went through from scene to scene. Costume designer Colleen Atwood had actress Mia Wasikowska looking as if at any moment she might leave this "Wonderland" and go to the runway where she belonged. I was so inspired by the cuts cinched at the waist, the lace and the ruffles and the lovely fingerless gloves. It was all so yum. If you have no desire to see this film, at least go see it for the fashion. Images from the film are minimal but here's a little taste.
