a visit to Winterthur: Costumes of Downton Abbey

Along with my golfing pals, I recently made an excursion to Winterthur in Wilmington, Delaware. Winterthur was home to the du Pont family dating back to the early 1800's.  We viewed 40 pieces of wardrobe designed for and worn by the actors in the British series, Downton Abbey. Wardrobe designers had only seven weeks to design and compose these costumes from the time they received the script for the season. 

Downton Abbey, Season 5 returns on January 4, 2015.
