Absolutely and Completely Fabulous
on May 5, 2014
I have designed my clothing for years and also owned a window covering business where I spent endless hours in drapery workrooms working with seamstresses in order to come up with a beautiful finished product. The detail and intricacy of any design-with-fabric business is both time consuming and very fulfilling. This movie took me back into the world of fabrics and designs. The clothing worn by both lead actresses was stunning. When they showed their seasonal lines to their clients, I could not take my eyes off the fashions. I can see why this series won awards for fashion design. Fashions during the 1920's had a lot of bead work, usually done by hand. You don't see that work any longer and it was a joy to behold during this series.
I also loved the language. It was so nice to not hear slang and harsh words like we hear on our TV today. Yes, people got angry and upset, but their vocal expressions were so much more palatable then what you see today. My last comment is that this series is primarily for women. I fully intend to watch it for many, many years to come.
