This was the heyday of the great fashion houses. They had been going since Charles Frederick Worth opened his own shop, Maison Worth, in 1858, conquering the Second Empire in the process, but I think it was between the wars and for a decade or so after that the rule – or tyranny – of the fashion leaders held mightiest sway. In the series, we mention Patou and Lucile and Molyneux and various others, and all these designers had their followings. Lucile was glamorous but safe, Patou more daring, Molyneux definitively chic, and so on.
Does he have a theory for the show’s success? Gareth nods: ‘It starts with being an expressly British and familiar genre – the aristocracy in the English country house – which we know from Agatha Christie, P. G. Wodehouse and Jane Austen. But where previously it’s been literary or sedate or a little old-fashioned, what we’ve done is provide sharp, pacy, modern storytelling with multiple narratives. So firstly, it’s familiar, and secondly, it’s slightly unexpected. Thirdly, the characters are so well drawn and acted you can relate to them.
