I am an inveterate list maker and avid film watcher. And, this week’s Oscars challenge reminded me that a list of movies with great fashion (to admire or knock-off) deserves to live here. Let’s begin our list with a movie I haven’t seen. One that has already inspired fellow Sew Weekly contributor, Tina C. to make this lovely dress.
An Education (2009)
Directed by Lone Scherfig
Costume Design by Odile Dicks-Mireaux
Set in 1960’s London, this movie is a coming-of-age story about a girl who gets involved with a man twice her age. And, from what I’ve heard and seen so far, the vintage fashion is worth the watch.
This film would be a great start to a triple-feature, 1960’s movie marathon. And, with the Sew Weekly’s Mad Men challenge coming up on March 19th and the show’s season five premiere on the 25th, the time is so right. Hm…now what other movie filled to the brim with 1960’s fashion should make up my marathon?
