The House of EliottTuesday, August 24, 2010
The British tv-series House of Eliott was a big hit in Sweden in the early 90's. I am curious if it was a splash in other countries too? It is a classic BBC-drama in the spirit of The Forsyte Saga and The Onedin Line - fantastic actors, beautiful costumes, a lot of indoor studio shots and engaging story lines that runs over many episodes. The story is set in the 1920's and resolves around the two Eliott sisters, who after their father's death, decides to start a fashion house. I recently revisited the series, and it has really stood the test of time. This is a must see if you are fashion history buff, a large chunk of story line resolves around the clothes, but there are of course a lot of drama too! It is readily available on DVD.
