Main characters: Miuccia Prada worked with costume designer Catherine Martin, wife of director Baz Lurhmann to provide the set of the Great Gatsby with 40 outfits adapted from the Prada’s archives.
Plot: Prada was approached to collaborate with Martin after several Prada and Miu Miu pieces were inadvertently worn during test scenes – and they were found to work really well. The pair then worked together on pieces that evoked the Twenties. Prada admits that what intrigued her the most when working on the project was the way in which many of her designs could be so easily translated into Twenties pieces – despite not necessarily being originally created with that era in mind. The dress worn by Mulligan as Buchanan in the big party scenes took its roots from Prada’s spring/summer 2010 “chandelier dress“.
