As you all know I am a costume and set designer, so naturally I get pretty excited about period films. The team at Bazmark have once again managed to peak the interest of movie lovers around the world with the release of The Great Gatsby. 
I am a huge fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel and the 1974 film by Jack Clayton with the divine Mia Farrow as Daisy, so I await the Australian release of Baz Lurhmann's new film with anticipation. 
The film opens on the 30th of May, book yourselves in for a night of spectacle, glamour, drama and one of the greatest stories ever written. The irony of the American dream and that damn green light blinking across the water!  
Also I am pretty excited to see Gemma Ward grace our screens in this film! Love that girl!
Keen for some little facts about the Costume of the film?
