This weekend, ABC will run a four-part miniseries called Titantic, which marks the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking on April 15, 1912. Costume designer James Keast spent hours searching eBay for the perfect vintage accessories and scoured car boot sales (garage sales out of car trunks) in London for unique materials. “I’d buy lots of antique lace, beading, ribbons and buttons to pair with modern, stronger fabrics,” Keast told InStyle.com. “A scrap piece of rubbish to someone else could be a fantastic piece of lace to me!” See how he painstakingly recreated the wardrobe of Titanic passengers in the gallery, and watch the first part of the series Saturday at 8/7c on ABC.
