Irene Sharaff's sketch for Brigadoon
Happy Halloween, everyone. This is officially OUR holiday, so have a blast tonight!! I wanted to show you something that is pretty beautiful and amazing. I am sorry I didn’t know about it earlier, but wanted to share it with you just the same. Icollector had a huge auction of vintage costume sketches on their site recently. You can see them here. They had a ton of sketches from the likes of Walter Plunkett, Travis Banton, Irene, Anthea Sylbert, Valles, Edith Head, Travilla, Irene Sharaff, Orry Kelly and many more. It is truly something to behold.

Have a happy and safe Halloween, Frocktalkers!!
