Are The Expectations of The Great Gatsby Fashion Bigger than the Actual Movie?

We could not wait to see The Great Gatsby fashion in all its glory and we weren’t the only ones. See what we thought of the finished product and the current 1920s fashion trend.

Are The Expectations of The Great Gatsby Fashion Bigger Than The Actual Movie?

The long awaited The Great Gatsby film promises to be the movie of the year for us fashion lovers.
This classic book based in the 1920s has been adapted again for the screen. F. Scott Fitzgerald's fashionable novel about the excesses of the jazz age offered a bevvy of stars who snapped up roles.
The latest Baz Luhrmann epic saw Tobey Maguire, Leonardo di Caprio and Carrey Mulligan in starring roles. Like they don't already look wonderful in clothes, we were very excited by the costumes, in part designed by Miuccia Prada.

The dresses are stunning. Stunning. Yet, we would have loved more close ups especially of the famous dress that got leading lady, Daisy Buchanan, the kiss. What can we say, we’re fashion fiends.
Here in London Fitting Rooms, we alter many high end garments inspired by the 20s fashion trend. They have beautiful embroideries, lower waist cut and precious silk fabrics, so we have the privilege of seeing every detail, close up.
Like this dress by Christian Dior, to which our tailor, Ela, is applying the final touches to before delivery. She’s checking for cottons and pulls around the embroidery.
This lovely dress made it on the best dressed list in Harper’s Bazaar. Worn by British actress, Ruth Wilson, we can certainly see how she worked it.
