Just finished Netflix binge watching The Paradise.
I liked it. The show features the above girl, Denise as she leaves her small town to work in a large department store (a new concept in the 1870’s). There were some interesting plot lines and some cool characters but we all know why I watched it…costumes! Some were really pretty and to my eye, good theatrical representations of what might have been worn. I did have trouble with Miss Glendenning. Some of her dresses in season one…they were often white with extremely strong contrasting colors in them.
They were so strong that it seemed like modern polyester material. It probably was modern polyester but it shouldn’t have looked like it! I also had some issues with the actress-seemed too old for the part of a young heiress in the 1870’s looking for a husband (in season one). They married her off in season two and that suited better.
