How did I ever miss this incredible BBC series back in the 90s? Thanks to my public library, I can finally see the whole kit and kaboodle, measuring out three seasons long. The House of Elliott chronicles the lives of two sisters setting up a toney couture house in post WWI London. The magnificent costuming by Joan Wadge can't be missed if you are in any way in love with jazz age fashion. While the 20's proffered little in the way of flattering silhouettes, the detailing in fashion was extraordinary. Thus, the cavalcade of chic found in this series goes for sets and decor intricate in detail as well. Tune in to the second season and I can promise two stunner wedding gowns you'll never forget.
