A BUSY COS­TUME DE­PART­MENT

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - 8/FILM -

In­dus­try great Jac­que­line Dur­ran set up a de­part­ment of em­broi­der­ers, milliners, jew­ellers, painters and tex­tile work­ers, and the Os­car­win­ning Bri­tish artist de­signed ev­ery­thing from the vil­lagers’ peas­ant cos­tumes to the gowns worn at the Prince’s ball. Her big­gest hur­dle came in the form of Belle’s fa­mous yel­low dress, which took over 12,000 hours to make. “The dress was al­ways go­ing to be yel­low, as an homage to the an­i­ma­tion,” ex­plains Dur­ran. “What we tried to do was re-in­ter­pret it and flesh it out by adding more tex­ture, and mak­ing it feel like a real liv­ing cos­tume.”
