Netflix’s Bridgerton is an undeniable visual treat. From the period-authentic wigs to the stunning costumes, the dramatic series seems to have perfected the costume drama while simultaneously stretching its anachronistic wings.

Production designer Will Hughes-Jones honed his skills on other period pieces such as The Spanish Princess and The White Princess, but here he stretches himself as never before. He designed Regency-era sets that would mirror the elaborate romance of the plot itself.
