EVITA Costume challenge – “knockoff” Dior original – Valentina tool helpful

The largest challenge for costume creation for Evita was duplicating the look of the Dior original suit made for Eva Perone and her “Rainbow Tour” of Europe.  Evita was photographed in the original and it was used in this stage play as an icon for the Rainbow Tour

The white suit began as a simple women’s business suit donated to the theater (see http://www.wholebackstage.com for information about the theater).  My next post will show the process of transforming the suit.
