Game of Thrones’ costume designer on why Sansa Stark’s coronation gown is so special




A show like Game of Thrones doesn’t simply reach the stature it did without everything being high class. An area where the show truly held its own was costume designing. Designers, Michele Clapton and April Ferry really pushed the envelope with their work on the show and now they have already begun spreading their wings elsewhere. Clapton worked on the show for nearly a decade, hence it is no surprise she remembers most of them with great detail. She especially loved the design of Sansa Stark’s coronation gown, and talked about what it meant to her.


In a recent interview with BBC, the Emmy and BAFTA-winning costume designer said, “Sansa’s final costume was a celebration of almost every craft in the building, from armoury to leather to embroidery to printing so that was a culmination of everyone’s hard work. It was great because on [screen] they were my hands dressing it, which somehow seemed really poignant at the end of that epic nine years of my life I spent on the show.”

Michele also particularly remembers Daenerys’ costumes “because there was so much texture and workmanship involved.” She adds about her time on Game of Thrones, “I learned so much doing that show and it actually created careers for so many people who had nine years to develop and hone their skills and learn.”
