ROARING AHEAD: After traveling from London to New York to Tokyo to Shanghai, 12 of the original costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin for Daisy Buchanan in Buz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” are coming home to Caudry, hub of French lace manufacturing.
The lace museum there will showcase the award-winning pieces alongside eight original Twenties dresses, which it acquired for its permanent collection.
Caudry is home to Solstiss, the French lace specialist, which provided 1,400 meters of its fabric and 210 of its coveted designs for the eccentric Hollywood adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, which won an Oscar for costume design and production design earlier this month.
The exhibition, which will run from March 14 through Aug. 31, will also include lectures on “Movies and Fashion” and “The Fashion of the Roaring Twenties” along with Charleston and Quickstep classes led by Nathalie Delcroix, four-time world dance champion, for an actual taste of the era.
Solstiss, meanwhile, already has its hands full with another blockbuster production. The lace maker confirmed it was involved in the costume making of “Gods of Egypt,” starring Gerard Butler and Geoffrey Rush. The movie’s release is slated for 2016.
