This morning I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to a BBC Radio 4 interview with Janie Bryant the designer of Mad Men.
Costume designers make a lot of choices based not only on the period but also on the individual personality traits of the characters themselves. What I really enjoyed about this interview what how much Ms. Bryant takes into consideration and explains her own view of the different women on the show-and how this translates into their costumes.
You can find more interviews with Janie Bryant on the AMC- Mad Men website, as well as some backstage looks at the costume wardrobe. In the mean time here are some descriptive images of “The Women of Mad Men”.
