The Dark Crystal Collection

The Dark Crystal Collection

It’s been a little while since the last ‘Fun Fashion Fact’ post, but I thought this would tie in to Monday’s post over on the main blog on about the 1982 Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal.

It turns out that several of the artists involved in the fabrication of the film’s puppets and costumes went on to collaborate on a collection of garments inspired by the film. The video shows various processes used to craft the garments including textile screen-printing and weaving.

For more information on the collection see this curated entry from Jim Henson’s Red Book on henson.com, and this letter from Cheryl Henson on darkcrystal.com.
