August is almost over & I’m getting my DVR ready to start recording all of my favorite shows that are returning this fall. This includes Revenge, which ended last season with so many twists that left me on quite the cliff all summer long!
In the recently released season 3 promo for the ABC drama, we get a 30-second look of all the thrills that will unfold when the show premieres on September 29th! In Style shared an interview with the show’s costume designer, Jill Ohanneson, who is behind Emily Thorne’s gorgeous & flowing wedding dress, pictured in the sketch above & video clip below!
“After hearing about what would happen, the dress required so many elements that I knew we weren’t going to find any one piece that would do everything we needed, & since we had three weeks of prep time at the beginning, I found the fabric, did three or four sketches, and designed it myself,” says Ohanneson, adding, “I know Emily likes very slim silhouettes, but I also knew the producers and directors wanted the fabric to float around her when she fell into the water. To make that happen, I started with a slim silhouette & built around it with tulle, since it’s lightweight and floats well.”
“We ended up making four gowns- we kept one perfect, we had to build one for a stunt girl, & we made two more that can take the blood hits. We saved the original since we’d have to shoot a wedding down the line,” explains Ohanneson.
