Mad Men Costume Roundup

Do you love Mad Men as much as I do? If so, it’s probably because not only is a great story, but also the amazing attention to period detail. And I am increasingly learning to LOVE the early 1960s, so yeah — if I could have Joan Holloway’s hair & wardrobe, I’d be pretty happy.

Here’s an interview with the costume designer at the San Francisco Chronicle and another at Glamour. The series website has a video tour of the costume shop. And don’t forget to Mad Men yourself!

    Totally unrelated (but I do like the early 60s!) and since I'm too lazy at the moment to email, I finally put a page up for my Eugenie dress. About time? :)

    Between Mad Men and Project Runway, I own the national debt in fabric and vintage sewing patterns. Now, to just sit down and do it……

    LOVE the "Madmen yourself"! Got myself a new icon right there. Have only seen a few of the TV progs, but we have it on box set…

    I certainly do… the set design, the costume, hair and makeup, love it. The excessive smoking, not so much but it fits with the times.

    Series one finished last month here in Australia so I'm just hoping a series 2 is on it's way.
