See The Dresses

Hedy’s designs were brought to life by the Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s Costume Shop. This team researched design from this period and painstakingly constructed the pieces. From the buttons (hand covered) to the zippers (vintage), the pleats (sourced from New Jersey) to the patterns (silk-screened and handpainted), Each was created with meticulous detail to ensure that Hedy’s vision was realized.
