When you tour indoor the Biltmore mansion, you will see how they staged a number of costumes from 13 movies throughout the different rooms of the house. Not only the costumes on display reveal the detail involved in costume design during that period, but also the work of costume designers. These are elaborated costumes from recent films such as Sherlock Holmes, Anna Karenina, and finally, Pride and Prejudice, one of my favorite movies of all times.
Mr. George Vanderbilt’s love of literature, showcases more than 40 award-winning movie costumes in the castle from films based on favorite books in his collection. His personal library is said to include more than 22,000 volumes.
I continue to be amazed at how ahead of his time Mr. George Vanderbilt was and I feel blessed to be able to enjoy the beauty of that Era in that mansion today, when life has turned to so much violence and craziness. Thanks so much Mr. George Vanderbilt.
