IFTN Set Report: Ripper Street

The Irish Film & Television Network (IFTN) sat down with Lorna Marie Mugan, the costume designer for Ripper Street.

The wealthier characters’ costumes were something Mugan could get her teeth into, with Detective Reid (Macfadyen) sporting the more outlandish costumes. His colour of choice is blue, among a sea of solemn grey. Mugan says: “Our lead characters have other stories to tell from different places, so for example Detective Reid was a real man who was quite elegant and I kept him as a very strong silhouette. We don’t really have anything other than blue in Whitechapel, the palette is quite muddy otherwise.

Filming continues for another 9 weeks.  Read more about the costumes HERE.
