About the Costume

Costume designer Yvonne Blake most likely designed this purple gown for use in the 1999 film Presence of Mind, where Sadie Frost wore it as The Governess. 

The piece was seen again on Jo Joyner as Fanny Thornton in the 2004 mini-series North and South. The gown’s color subtly depicts how Fanny’s comfortable life is built on the distress of the working class when the character Boucher is found drowned in a canal, his face covered in the same purple dyes as her gown.

 In 2007 the piece was worn by Emma Fielding as Miss Galindo in Cranford, and in 2012 it appeared in Horrible Histories on Sarah Hadland in a sketch about Victorian Fashion.
