The Gatsby costumes unveiled in Shanghai
(09-13 15:48)

A number of costumes including women’s gowns, dresses, hats, shoes and jewelry as well as sketches, production stills, backstage footage and film trailers from the Baz Luhrmann film adaptation of The Great Gatsby have gone on display at the Prada IFC store in Shanghai
The costumes were designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin.
An Academy Award and Tony winning costume designer and art director, Martin is world-renowned for her collaborations with husband Luhrmann on the films Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and the Broadway stage design for La Bohéme.
The exhibition, Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada Dress Gatsby was curated by New York studio 2x4.
The display is comprised of translucent fiberglas mannequins lit from free-standing bases that include photographs and a brief biography of the character that wore the costume. The biographies reveal the rich and detailed way in which Martin imagines even minor characters in each scene. The mannequins are contextualized by a collage mural depicting the riotous party scene where many of the Prada and Miu Miu dresses make their appearance, and large-scale video displays that present scenes from the film. --The Standard
