Audio-visual consumption has grown considerably, and television series and cinema are now available to everyone on streaming platforms, anywhere and at any time of day. This has led producers to seek inspiration in literary works, which has given rise to a constant increase in the number of adaptations produced.

This project has involved investigation into why an increasing number of books are being adapted and why they are used to find inspiration. The current circumstances of the sector and its users are also explored, and the information gathered is applied to the wardrobe design of a literary adaptation with a view to enhancing its presence through concealed messages and the use of denim as a distinctive element.

The project has involved research for information online, a survey among potential users and an interview with a worker from the sector to provide an insider’s perspective of the current status of filmmaking.
