Gene, Chris Stoeckel, & Vertigo
From the moment I saw his work, I wanted to have a Chris Stoeckel design; perfect tailoring on authentically vintage outfits. This guy is a talent. Here you can see photos of my first commission, which was inspired by the Edith Head designs for Hitchcock’s movie “Vertigo.” If you are a Hitchcock buff, then you'll know that Hitch often put his blondes in gray, even though gray is not typically a great color for them. Especially in this movie, it worked well for the mysterious character of Madeleine Elster, expertly played by Kim Novak. Chris did a fantastic job of not only creating this outfit, but in picking out the perfect fabrics as well.
