Vintage clothing drowns during `Titanic’ filming

SHARE Vintage clothing drowns during `Titanic’ filming

The ship wasn't the only thing that went down during the filming of James Cameron's "Titanic."

Much of Hollywood's vintage clothing stock from the early 1900s met its watery end, too. Kate Winslett reportedly ran through 28 ancient dresses in one scene alone.That's causing problems for the producers of the NBC miniseries "A Will of their Own," which also needed period dresses for its chronicle of the changing roles of women over the past 100 years.

" `Titanic' not only got all the wardrobe in town from that period, but they destroyed much of it in the water scenes," Mark Wolper, executive producer of the miniseries, told TV Guide.
