Canale sums up her thoughts on the issue of historical accuracy rather brilliantly, “The thing with Bridgerton is that it isn't period correct and it’s never trying to be.” That doesn’t mean her designs are ill-informed. Quite the opposite. In her view, “you start with your historical knowledge and then, if you know the basics, you're allowed to kind of break the boundaries.”
Another ahistorical aspect of the show is diversity and that ties in nicely with the promised addition of Indian-influenced designs—brought in alongside sisters Kate and Edwina Sharma—played by Simone Ashley and Charithra Chandran respectively.
Canale tells us a big piece of designing for these sisters with Indian dress in mind was “deciding how much we were going to push,” and “how much they were going to fit into the Regency English Ton look.”
