‘For All Mankind’: Costume design secrets

“My main creative approach was making sure the costumes were as authentic and real as possible in order to offset the fact that we were creating an alternate reality,” Jill M. Ohanneson says about creating the fashions on “For All Mankind” on AppleTV+. “We need costumes to help anchor the viewers in Houston in the late ’60s and early ’70s, and it was very important that the costumes be appropriate for that part of the country vs. what was going on in high fashion N.Y. or beach casual L.A. These are people who shop Sears, Montgomery Ward and J.C. Penney, not Neiman Marcus.”
