Today HBO released a video featuring main costume designer, Michele Clapton, discussing her evolutionary sewing journey from working on clothes for herself to being the head costume designer for the award-winning fantasy series – Game of Thrones.
Throughout the course of the video, we get glimpses of all the characters of Season 7 in their costumes. We also get shots of the close up details in the costumes.
My favorite part of the video is when she discusses how the costumes she constructs for Game of Thrones reflect who the characters are and how the details reflected in the clothing help to show how the characters are progressing throughout the series. Oh, and when she discusses how she keeps a book for each character so that she keeps a record of any inspiration that pops up.
Last season we saw Cersei ascending to the throne now that her children are all dead. Daenerys took off with her dragons and her army towards Westeros. And, as we’ve known for awhile now, the Night King is getting ready to head South to wage a battle for supremacy over Seven Kingdoms. Considering we don’t have much time left for the series, loose ends are going to be wrapped up in a big way with this upcoming season.
Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere this summer on July 16, 2017.
