Vintage Fashion and the Downton Abbey Effect
The critically an popularly acclaimed British Soap Opera Drama Downton Abbey may not air here in the US for a few more months, but it currently has Brits enthralled overseas! This show has it all – drama, scandal, intrigue, and drool-worthy antique jewelry and fashion. We can’t wait to see what Lady Mary, The Dowager Countess and the gang are wearing to dinner this season, and apparently neither can anyone else. Downton Abbey fashion impacted the way Americans shopped – or at least what we’re searching for. Vintage fashion and vintage jewelry is in even higher demand thanks to this beautifully designed show. It doesn’t hurt that the stars, like Michelle Dockery, show up on red carpets like the 2012 Emmys in custom designed Louis Vuitton gowns and Fred Leighton Jewellery. Or that the fictional Lady Mary has fabulous taste in jewelry too. This infographic will have to hold us over until the US premiere of the show!
