Fashion in Films

by Ben Mulvey July 14, 2016

Being suppliers of wholesale women’s clothing, and today being the day on which the 2001 movie Legally Blonde turns 15, we thought we take a look back at fashion in cinema.

For those of you who are a little rusty on their Legally Blonde knowledge, the film followed the tale of Elle Woods and the struggles she faced on her journey of becoming a lawyer.  Along the way the pink wearing heroine battled the prejudices and snobbery of her peers, showing, ultimately that no book should be judged purely by its cover. Her journey wasn’t a lonely one, however, as she was joined by her trusted companion, Bruiser, her pet Chihuahua.

Although fashion wasn’t the main focus of the film it did help define the characters portrayed in the movie. This, of course, got us thinking… What other films have featured heavy use of fashion?

Audrey Hepburn - Breakfast at Tiffany’s

In fact, just about any film featuring Audrey Hepburn could have made this list. She was one stylish icon. The 1961 comedy / drama based on the Truman Capote novel of the same name, gives a great insight into the fashion of the era.

Kate Hudson - Almost Famous

This comedy drama from the early 2000’s features Kate Hudson, playing the real-life character Penny (Lane) Ann Trumbull. Trumbull, was an American socialite, philanthropist, businesswoman, and entrepreneur. Hudson portrays Trumbull during her days as a band manager and promoter. Seeing the outfits in this film you no difficulty knowing which era it is based in.

Keira Knightley – Atonement

Atonement follows the story of two young lovers Cecilia Tallis and Robbie Turner played by Knightley and James McAvoy, and how they come to terms with a lie that tares their relationship part. Set in the 1930s, viewers can expect plenty of banjo and butterfly sleeves, but let us not forget the exaggerated shoulder pads.

Looking back at fashion is all very well but the fashion relies on us looking forward. If you are looking for a supplier of, look no further than us here at One 2 Wear. Our wardrobe friendly wholesale women’s clothing is just what your collections will need.
