Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet: A Costume Review


Why is it that love, tragedy, and fashion seem to go hand and hand in all of the greatest dramas? The most captivating and moving films don’t necessarily conclude with a happy ending. They spark emotion and growth, and leave us feeling and knowing something more than we did before we watched them. Watching a great movie is insightful, emotionally moving, and it challenges our intellect.

The translation of a written story to the big screen is incredibly delicate, and takes a skilled director. The wardrobe is an integral part of storytelling, and authenticates the director’s vision. But if it’s not done well, it can interfere with the story.

Visually translating the wardrobes can either be a designer’s dream or nightmare, depending on the talent involved.

Luckily, the costume designers for Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet had the expertise to support their visions, and the creativity to produce the most exceptional designs.
