“We filmed the highly acclaimed historical costume specialist Luca Costigliolo, dressing a model in an exact replica 1870’s dress, made by his students at the National School of Cinema in Rome. The video was subtitled to enhance visitor accessibility and is one of several audio visual pieces which Indigo created and produced for the new Fashion and Textile Gallery at The Bowes Museum.”
