Whilst we wait for season three of The Crown, we’re devouring every detail we can RN.
The latest series news to surface is an interview with the woman behind the show’s incredible clothes.
It was no surprise when The Crown won an Emmy for costume design. A big part of the reason we watch the show is to obsess over the beautiful designs.
The thinking behind the genius is Jane Petrie, who reigns supreme as the best in the business when it comes to TV costume design.
Jane, originally from Fife, says it was the script that attracted her to the job of styling the period drama, which sets itself in the late 50s and early 60s.
Speaking to the BBC, Jane said: “In that particular episode there was a Royal visit to Ghana, there was tribal stuff from Africa, there was the Kennedy’s and Jackie and good Margaret costumes so there was quite a broad example of everything the series had to offer.”
Jane’s career began age 22 as wardrobe mistress on films such as Notting Hill and she says her passion began following a visit to the V&A in London when she was ten years old. She says the visit kicked off a ‘lifelong interest’ in historical clothing.
