Creatively Clad: A Showcase of Creative Costume Design

Advertisement

One area of design that tends to constantly be producing innovative and impressive results is the field of costume design. With so many important scenes relying heavily on the costumes to help create and solidify the tone and feeling of the piece, costume designers have a lot to carry on their shoulders. So much has to be conveyed through the clothing the models are clad in, and sold through them as they are often more than just the focal point of the piece, they are often the only engaging element in the foreground.

So below is a fantastic collection that explores so many talented designers’ work in this field for you to refill your inspirational well. From all of the everyday casual fashion that surrounds us, it is always nice to break into new worlds through the art of creative costume design.

    Great collection! Especially love the ‘Exoskeleton’ shoes by Janina Alleyne, too bad you probably won’t be able to leave the house wearing them ;)
