Mad Men Costumes and Collaborations

July 25, 2010

The long awaited season 4 begins tonight. The hype is big and the anticipation is growing. I’m very ready to start having weekly conversations analyzing the complex lives of Don and Betty Draper. I’m not here to critique the show, so instead I thought I’d fill you in on some of the fun partnerships formed around Mad Men and heavy attention on the wardrobe to get ready for the new season.
