In The Dressmaker, Kate Winslet’s Tilly Dunnage brings haute couture-inspired fashions in rich jewel tones and sumptuous fabrics to the women living in the dreary, dusty, rural Australian town of her childhood. The film is set in the early 1950s, when the hour-glass silhouette was in vogue: sloping shoulders, pointed bodices, nipped-in waists, and A-line or hip-hugging pencil skirts. That decade Schreiner of New York made high-quality costume jewelry in rich jewel tones and elegant designs to complement the ‘50s look. These fabulous clip-back earrings are one of his creations.
