"Mad Men" Fashion Show

Costume designer Janie Bryant discusses design and look.



    "Mad Men" Fashion Show
    Costume designer Janie Bryant discusses dressing "Mad Men" at LACMA on Wednesday, June 9.

    Not knocking relaxed wear or pulled-out tees or nubbily PJs.

    Not at all. A pair of sweatpants can be an end-of-the-long-day friend. But when we see the clothes of "Mad Men," we always vow to de-casual a lot of our wardrobe and embrace the A-line skirt, the pale pink crinoline, the Peter Pan collar.

    Janie Bryant can get our thanks for putting those fanciful yet achievable wishes in our un-beehived head. She's the costume designer on the hit AMC show, a series that is known very much for its sartorial splash.

    Ms. Bryant will be clicking her heels into the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wednesday, June 9 for a "Mad Men" fashion show (no stars are listed as attending, but bet the models will be Draper'd-out). We'll also add that the always nice Matthew Weiner -- the man behind "Men" -- is scheduled to be there.

    The costumer will chat about the show's characters and their clothing and cachet with author Monica Corcoran Harel. If you don't have a pillbox to put on your bouffant, a nice pair of hose or a corsage would be welcome.

    Tickets are $60; time is 7:30 p.m. The evening is hosted by LACMA's Costume Council.
