I know many of you, as well as I, cannot wait to see the first episode of Season Three of Downton Abbey premiering on your local PBS station on Sunday, January 6th. (Check your local listings for the time in your area.)
The exquisite manor house, the sprawling estate, and the intriguing characters with their elegant costumes has made this the must-see series on PBS’s Masterpiece Theater for the last two years. Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey, interwove in the major events of the 1910s into his story-line. From the sinking of the Titanic, to World War I to the Spanish Influenza epidemic, Fellowes and his production team expertly told these stories and accurately brought the fashions of the time-period into the first two seasons. Their work garnered several Emmy nominations for costume designs.
Season 3 picks up where Season 2 left off. The First World War has ended and the Roaring 1920s are in full swing. I cannot wait to see how the fashions evolve into the new decade.
To see the changes in fashion in the series really brings back my days of studying costume history. If you really would like to get a sample of how women in fashion changed through the years, then this show is for you. The story line is captivating with the on-again, off-again romance of the Crowley sisters. And the fashions will draw your eyes in for more.
This is one of my favorite costumes from Downton Abbey on Sybil in Season 2, one of the three Crowley sisters. This is the first glance of a lady at Downton Abbey wearing pants. Oh my gosh! Oh yes, she’s wearing pants. They almost look like harem pants, so chic.
If you will be watching Season Three, let me know what you are hoping to see happen with the plot line.
