Stunning garments in a PBS series

Morton | Posted in Talk With Us on

Hello,

If you want to see stunning garments, and haven’t seen the PBS series called “The House of Ellott”, it’s a must. Can be ordered from Netflix. It’s a series about a fashion house and the costumes of the principle 2 actresses are stunning. Every outfit is gorgeous.

    Hi Morton,
    I saw that show advertised on PBS, but never heard a time. I will watch for it more closely.

          All the PBS masterpiece theater series seem to have at least two or three outfits that make me want to hit the pause button. The latest Jane Eyre had a beautiful collar on at one point. I'll have to wait for the repeats to remember details.

    It is fabulous!

    I have watched the first two seasons . . . I checked them out from my local library.  I'm on the waiting list for season three.

    I highly recommend The House of Eliott . . . it's a wonderful series about two sisters in 1920's England that start their own fashion design company.  I really love watching the fashions and the details.

        Libraries are fabulous!  I get so many DVDs and books on tape from the library . . . what a great way to take advantage of my tax dollars at work.

        Two other BBC series with amazing costumes are The Pallisers (Victorian England) and The Aristocrats, which covers the time period from mid 1700s through the early 1800s

        As for mainstream movies with great costumes, I love Amadeus . . . such a grand scale.  The Age of Innocence has some incredible detail of garments and accessories.  A real departure for Scorscese as far as the story . . . although, I'm not crazy about the story itself. 

        A few more off the top of my head

        Vanity Fair

        Shakespeare In Love

        Chariots of Fire

        The Aviator

        Titanic

        Marie Antoinette

        Ever After

        Dangerous Liaisons

        Valmont

        Now, I feel a need to start watching some of these!

            Hi All,

             You want geogeous costumes, see if you can get hold of a series called Brideshead Revisited. On the ABC (Australia) many years back produced by the BBC wiyh a young Jeremy Irons. Frocks to drool over.
