The Birds (1963)
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Costume Des. Edith Head
Ashley and Camille start off by discussing the seminal thriller The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. While acknowledging the painful production of this film, they peel back the curtain on Edith Head’s influence and the expertise needed to create a movie star.
American Psycho (2000)

Moving onto a more modern film, our hosts look to American Psycho as a fashion-influenced film and how fashion brands and trends can inform a character.
Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)
Dir. Guillermo Del Toro, Costume Des. Lala Huete
A favorite of both Ashley and Camille’s, Pan’s Labyrinth is a masterclass in overall film design. After explaining the various influences on the film, they examine its surprising influence in early ‘00s fashion.
The Witch (2015) & Midsommar (2019)
The Witch: Dir. Robert Eggers, Costume Des. Linda Muir
