Since its debut on Christmas Day, Bridgerton has been the talk of the internet.

The new Netflix series, set in 1813 in Regency England, is making waves for its raunchy storylines and colour-conscious casting – not to mention its sumptuous costumes.

Costume designer Ellen Mijornick is behind the series’ estimated 7,500 pieces, including a serious amount of delicately embroidered evening gowns and jewelled tiaras to span 10 on-screen balls.

She’s also been responsible for modernising old period-piece tropes, by adding sexy sections of sheer fabric to dresses, doing away with bonnets and adding extra glitter.

Now, Netflix has partnered with the British Fashion Council (BFC) to commission up-and-coming designers, to create Regency-style garments inspired by the show.

London-based fashion designer Richard Quinn has mentored three BFC students – Aurelie Fontan, Edward Mendoza and Shanti Bell – to create Bridgerton-style period gowns, which are modelled by the stars of the show in a photoshoot, shot by Amber Pinkerton.

Claudia Jessie and Phoebe Dynevor, who plays the show’s central character Daphne, model period outfits by Bell. Nicola Coughlan and Golda Roscheuval are seen wearing gowns by Mendoza, while Adjoa Andoh wears Fontan’s creations alongside Dynevor again.

‘This year has been one of the hardest for the British fashion industry,’ says Gemma Juviler, the BFC’s commercial director.

‘We are delighted to partner with Netflix to support our talented designers to work on one of the biggest shows of the year – Bridgerton.

‘This collaboration with Netflix illustrates the vital position fashion plays in television.’
