The Leopard, The Name of the Rose, Marie Antoinette, Death in Venice – this book presents a rare collection of gowns that have appeared in some of the world’s most famous movies. Made by the acclaimed Italian costume house Tirelli Costumi, the gowns have scored their designers a string of Oscar wins and nominations over the decades, thanks in part to the support of legendary movie studios, the economic boom of the 1950s, and Italy’s venerable fashion and dressmaking heritage. This book tells intriguing behind-the-scenes tales behind the creation of costume history, offering a glimpse both into the costumer’s daily grind and the glamourous world of cinema.
