Director Tim Burton’s magical, yet skewed spin on the fantasy adventure, Alice in Wonderland, inspired two-time Oscar-winning costume designer, Colleen Atwood, to take an imaginative twist on the classic tale. “I really wanted to do something that went with the script, which put us in a new world for Alice. I set the costumes at the beginning of the movie in the period of the 1860s when the story was originally written, with her little party dress, because it was a recognizable thing,” revealed Atwood. “But from then on out I was set free. I was especially set free by the aspect of the story that when Alice shrinks and grows, her dress does not.”  »
