No comments:
From the series of "tv shows i loved to watch, but got cancelled", The Borgias was about the saga of a crime family in 1492 in Italy.Besides the fascinating plot and beautiful actors, the costumes were spectacular and eye-catching.In charge of the wardrobe was Gabriella Pescucci.

"Paintings are very important during any [historical] research process for me to get inspiration of any kind."

"The corsets are made from scratch.…Double canvas stitched together first, then steamed to shape them up to be finally hard-sticked (boned) in order to softly push the breasts up and frame the bosom within a gentle roundness, or sometimes, for a more squared-neck line….I understand [from the actresses] that it feels like torture, but the warmth of the body helps make it more bearable — the actresses can confirm that, but of course, it will never feel like a soft sweater.”

“Instead, the boning is sewn in to curve gently to provide room for the breasts.”

The hairstyles were very interesting and the headpieces were exquisite.

“Necklines are usually garnished in matching style with the skirt and the sleeves, and colored strings such as soutage with golden tips are used to tighten up the sleeves at the cuffs."
