Downton Abbey to Launch Clothing and Beauty Lines
Downton Abbey, Vanity Fair, Knockout Licensing
Downton Abbey inspired designers from Ralph Lauren to Marc Jacobs in their upcoming collections, but now the show's executive producer, Gareth Neame, confirmed with CNBC that "We'll be working across an entire range of products coming out this year. From fashion, apparel and homeware and furniture to wallpapers, beauty products and stationary."
There's no release date yet, but Vanity Fair reported that a contract with Knockout Licensing went into effect last summer. Neame went on to say, "It's very rare for a British drama to have this much retail potential and merchandizing value." I don't care how rare it is, I personally cannot wait to see what the collection has in store. I am hoping for some Lady Mary inspired pieces as well as a tea set fit for the Dowager Countess herself.
