[ Janie Bryant, Costume Madwoman ]

Janie Bryant, the amazing costume designer for Mad Men, was featured in the "My Stuff" segment of January's Vanity Fair magazine. Anyone who designs up to 250 outfits per show is a total inspiration and a hero in my book (blog). Check out some of her favorite things...
