Grab yourself some film costumes bargains!
An unusual auction of original film costumes from Jane Austen’s Persuasion and Miss Austen Regrets go under the Ebay hammer starting tomorrow 15th of March. In a surprising move BAFTA and EMMY award winning designer Andrea Galer has decided it is time to move on these much loved items.
In colaboration with The Jane Austen Centre Online Giftshop, Ms Galer has handpicked many costumes and accessories that are likely to be fought over by Austen and film fans.
Andrea Galer says, ‘Having made these costumes which have helped Sally Hawkins and Oliver Williams really feel their way into character, I no longer need to own them. In moving them on I want other people to be able to feel that connection with the skills and materials of the past.’
David Baldock, Director of The Jane Austen Centre in Bath says, ‘Having worked with Andrea in the past we were lucky enough to have been able to purchase a number of her film costumes. These costumes now enhance our exhibition display. The costumes and accessories have been of immense interest to fans of Austen and Regency fashion.’
Everyone can get involved as all of the items will start the auction at 99p! There will be a total of 21 lots spread over a 2 week auction window.
You can find all these items until Sunday 25th of March 2012 here: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/thejaneaustencentre
