Costume and Character: Danilo Donati / Fellin's 'Roma' (1972)

Here are some of the influentially extravagant, high camp costumes designed by Italian costume designer Danilo Donati (1926-2001).  Donati designed many costumes (as well as sets) for the great Italian directors Federico Fellini and Pier Paolo Pasolini, amongst others. These are works created for Fellini's 'Roma' (1972), in which life in Rome is depicted and contrasted in the 1940s and the 1970s -  it's a poetic historical essay, rich in satire. 

This is the famous Catholic fashion show scene towards the end of 'Roma',  in which many more of Donati's costumes can be seen:
