It was 100 years ago yesterday, April 10, 1912 that the Titanic took sail from Southampton, England and sadly sunk on April 15, 2012 in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Titanic fashion has been portrayed so times in many movies with each movie making their own spin on the tragic event.  When doing some research on the fashion from the Titanic movies I couldn't believe how many were actually produced.  Here are some of the movies and their fashion.

 

 

 

1912  Saved from the Titanic


This short film was debuted within a few short weeks of the Titanic sinking.  The film stared an actual Titanic survivor and get this in the movie she allegedly wore the outfit she had on in the lifeboat she was rescued in - white silk evening dress, a cardigan and a coat.

To ensure authenticity, the producers recruited a former captain of the Queen Elizabeth as a technical consultant.

1997  Titanic


The coat that Rose (Kate Winslet) wore in the 'sinking scene' was a size 8 while the rest of her gowns in the movie were a size 4.  The larger size was chosen for the coat so she would appear more volunerable in the sinking scenes.
