One of my Frocktalk spies came upon these fabulous costumes in the return rack at Western Costume. Aren’t they AWESOME?! Evidently these were used in a play in London. I can’t seem to get the back story as to who designed them, or what play it was, but they appear to be of a vague Napoleonesque vibe. How cool that they colored this fabric with MARKERS to get the texture?? My spy tells me that the fabric is a heavy canvas, almost a cotton duck, and that all of the buttons, embellishments, etc., are drawn in with markers. Inspired!!!

If anyone knows where these costumes came from, please let me know! They are really beautiful!!
