The team behind Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce is back! Mad Men made its much-awaited return to AMC last night with season six’s two-hour premiere, and today, we turned to the show’s costume designer Janie Bryant (shown inset) to get all the details on how she represented the storyline through the wardrobe. “It’s always the most important to stay true to the integrity of the characters,” Bryant said of her sixth season. “I keep in mind that some change with the times, like Megan with her floppy hat and Joan with her purple suit, and also, not everybody changes, like Don.” Click through the gallery to get more insider scoop and learn how she took the cast of characters from the shores of Hawaii to the streets of New York City.
