The Breathe dress is currently on tour with the Fashion in Film Exhibit. (See tour dates at the bottom of this page.) Some museums are allowing photos and some are not. Fortunately, the Huntsville, Grand Rapids, and Souix City museums allowed photos, so we have some excellent shots of this gown!
The gown with the torn wing was on display with the Cinematic Couture exhibit.
If you have pictures of this costumes, please send them to me to post here! A very big thank you to the photographers who let me use their pics!
One of Angelica Huston's gowns was on display in the Cinematic Couture exhibit in Florida! Thanks to Lindsay for this image of it!
This court gown is of figured velvet with Indian Embroidery on Brocade. The front panel is also Indian embroidery but a different pattern. The embroidery on the slashed sleeves include cornely work (a chain stitch) and gold wire which is twisted in to tiny springs (sometimes called "worms"). The hanging over sleeve is lined with gold lame. The pleating to the neckline is antique pleating, typically illustrated by the irregularity of the pleats. The same fabric is used in the slashes on the sleeves.
