Elhoffer Design’s Hamilton-Inspired Hamilgown Collection Hits The Stage

HamilGown-2324

We’ve had a preview of Elhoffer Design’s Hamilgown Collection, but now it’s ready for opening night. Plus, the photos by Lauren Elisabeth Photography capture both the fun and beauty of the collection and the cosplayers.

What started as Katie’s personal plan to make a dress for when she went to see Hamilton: An American Musical, became a collection—because she never does anything small.

This collection is also more elaborate than much of her previous geek fashion and uses fabric-covered and metal buttons, cuffed sleeves, pocket flaps above side-seam pockets, epaulettes, lace detailing, and more. They’re also light and easy to wear because none of these pieces actually have coats. It’s a very cool illusion due to topstitching and asymmetrical patterning.

I really hope Lin-Manuel Miranda sees this collection. I think he’d be thrilled to see what Hamilton has inspired.
