Anyway my favorite novel since school has always been Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. Today I went to visit the place where the Brontes lived and it got me thinking about fashion that has been influenced by literature. this picture above was taken by me about 4 years ago when I was doing A Level media. These are the moors where Wuthering Heights was meant to be set and I think it would make a perfect backdrop for a fashion editorial.There are so many designers who take inspiration from literature, the drama of Wuthering Heights can be seen in John Galliano’s work over and over again.
Lily Cole looks fabulous in this over-exaggerated gown by Galliano. I can imagine Catherine Earnshaw running across the moors in this looking for Heathcliff.
P.S I bought this…. (total geek)
