Baz Luhrmann’s hotly anticipated movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, The Great Gatsby, is set to make such an impression that the fashion world already started to take inspiration from heroine Daisy Buchanan’s iconic 1920’s wardrobe.
Drop-waist dresses, art deco prints, glamorous gold and black and beaded gowns are all signalling the return of the roaring twenties. To complement this trend accessorise with cloche hats, strings of pearls and Mary-Jane shoes.
Prada is the designing force behind the breath-taking fashion of this masterpiece movie, and the film’s costume designer Catherine Martin said this to Vogue UK about working with Miuccia Prada and director Baz Luhrmann, “Baz and Miuccia have always connected on their shared fascination with finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past. This connection is central to our relationship with Miuccia Prada on The Great Gatsby, and has connected our vision with hers.”
