The candy-coloured period piece Bridgerton seems to be on everyone’s must-watch list today.
According to Netflix, a whopping 82 million households around the world watched Bridgerton in the first 28 days since its Christmas 2020 launch, making it the number one show in Netflix history. The Shonda Rhimes executive-produced TV series (the brains behind Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Private Practice) was ranked number one in 83 countries including the US, UK, Brazil, France, India and South Africa. It make top 10 in all 190 countries except for Japan. And good news; Bridgerton will be renewed for Season 2!
Besides the scintillating storyline, fans of the show would be delighted to know that there were 7,500 pieces of costumes created under the guidance of Ellen Mirojnick, a 71-year-old New York native, who’s created dazzling works for Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct, The Greatest Showman and Maleficient.
According to an interview with Vogue.com, Mirojnick spoke to creator Sara, Chris Van Dusen and executive producer] Betsy Beers, “to see if it’d be possible to create something on this scale. I also knew the Shondaland aesthetic and understood that this was not going to be like a Jane Austen adaptation. How could we shift the aesthetics of a period drama to make it feel scandalous and modern? Then they asked if I wanted to do it and I jumped in because the challenge was too great. I’d never put together a costume house before.”
If you’re looking to add some Bridgerton-inspired ‘costume pieces’ to your wardrobe like a Featherington or Bridgerton sister, why not take cues from Ganni or Staud, with their lightweight, and flowy pieces that are practical for everyday wear?
