STREET PHOTOGRAPHY, VINTAGE FINDS & ORIGINAL ‘80s FABRICS: THE STORY BEHIND THE COSTUME IN ‘IT’S A SIN’

Breaking hearts and records, It’s A Sin is the five-part drama people can’t stop talking about. Set in the 1980s as the AIDS epidemic hits, the story charts the loves and losses felt by a group of young gay men and their friends — AKA the Pink Palace crew (La!) — at a time when everything changed. Here, costume designer Ian Fulcher reveals some of the photographs and footage that inspired the show’s looks, and how he used vintage clothes and authentic fabrics to tell a very real story.
