Dedicated to Fantastic Film and Television Costume, From the Golden Age to the 21st Century

I’ve always known of Adrian primarily through my study of film costume, but had not spent much time looking at his non-costume designs until today. I am in love. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the Met’s web gallery.
