From Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy), Bridgerton was live on Netflix the world’s leading streaming entertainment service on 25th of December.
The 8 episodes series showed fantastic fashion production elements.
The video explains the production of 7,500 customs pieces and explicit work done to produce a whole wardrobe during the regency era.
Ellen Mirojnick, Bridgerton Costume Designer explained in the video,
“The interpretation of 1813 needed to be an overview of how can we add modern elements to the customs, we have made it more luxurious and more sumptuous and we have been introduced to modern colour palettes,
but trying to stick to the basic foundation of 1813 era.”
Chris Van Dusen, creator, showrunner, writer and co-executive producer of the show commented,
“Because we know how important the wardrobe is, we went to the very best and lucky for us Ellen said yes, and she was up to the challenge and she ended up making some incredible pieces of wardrobe for us,”
“It is close to 7,500 pieces of wardrobe just made for Bridgerton. Everything you see is bespoke, everything you see is made for the show, nothing comes from a custom house.”
While Phoebe Dynevor playing Daphne Bridgerton commented on the fashion production,
“Our custom department is incredible, the custom is regency with a twist, everything is bold and beautiful.”
From Shondaland and Creator Chris Van Dusen (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy), Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market.
Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled.
But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) casts aspersions on Daphne.
Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.
Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
