Life Imitates Art: Fashion From the 7 Kingdoms

The series finale of Game of Thrones truly marks the end of an era. This widely followed show has gained so much momentum, reaching viewers from far and wide. It may even have the magnitude to be dubbed a cultural phenomenon.

As an audience, we have taken and received, in eight seasons worth of deeply complex storytelling, through incredible visuals, superb acting, and of course costumes that would blow any viewer’s mind.

Michele Clapton and April Ferry are those responsible for the ethereal, majestic, and intricate costumes that not only look beautiful and set the scene, but play a vital role in helping to tell the story. A character’s clothing conveys personal development, inner struggles, allegiances, and are all around deeply meaningful to the individual and to the plot. When it comes to the costumes on Game of Thrones, there is so much more than meets the eye.

These characters and costumes have had such an influence on fashion, art, and culture.  In honor of the closing of this epic eight season journey, we’ve collected a roundup of show stopping red carpet and runway looks, clearly giving a nod or taking a note from Game of Thrones.
