What: Reign Costumes custom gown
Where: Reign S02E03 ‘Coronation’
Costume designer Meredith Markworth-Pollack sourced the gold-embroidered burgundy brocade from a furniture upholstery store because, she explains, ”more often than not, they have bigger quantities in stock than the fashion fabric stores.” With approximately 12 yards of fabric in hand—and with a team of six seamstresses and designers—she created the dress in just two weeks.
Mary’s gown includes an exaggerated train. ”I wanted something that really went above and beyond anything we’ve seen Mary wear before,” says Markworth-Pollack, who cites photos of British Queen Victoria at her 1838 coronation as royal inspiration. [x]
