With a pilot shot by Martin Scorsese and an engaging story line, we knew from the get go that HBO’s Boardwalk Empire would be good. What we could not forecast is that the show would have an impact on fashion too! I was recently asked by Paul Fredrick to participate to the Boardwalk Empire Style challenge and I was happy to oblige, especially because I was an extra on that first episode (yes I know I have a different job but sometimes when they ask you to participate to something shot by a directorial icon, you just say yes and run with it). The best part of the challenge was to incorporate the style of series into daily life. I thought it would be quite difficult, but, to the contrary, it looks like designers are taking notice of this trend and are incorporating drop waist styles into their collections.
Here are a few inspirations for the ladies:
