Italian Costume designer Piero Tosi’s beautiful costumes are instantly recognizable due to the amount of detail that has gone into them. His film credits include Morte a Venezia (Death in Venice), Ludwig and Il Gattopardo (The Leopard), in addition to designing the costumes for several operas over the years. He was nominated five times for an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, and in 2013 was given an honorary Oscar for personal achievement in costume design.

This beautiful dressing gown was first designed for the 1981 film Lady of the Camellias (La Dame aux Camélias) where it was worn on Isabelle Huppert as Alphonsine Plessis.  In 1993 it was worn again on Mia Fothergill as Giuditta in the 1993 film Sparrow (Storia di una Capinera). It was seen a third time in 1998 in Cousin Bette on Kelly Macdonald as Hortense Hulot.
