The musical Hamilton has become a break-out sensation with sold out shows, eleven Tony Awards, and a national tour on the way. It is no wonder that the show inspired fans to create their own interpretations from elements of the Broadway show. One of those fans being the extremely talented Catherine of Elhoffer Designs; who has created a collection of Hamilton inspired dresses and tunic tops.
Elhoffer has us helpless and soon all fans will be saying, I do to the Hamilgown collection. Elhoffer’s collection began as an idea to create the perfect outfit for going to see the show but then turned into an entire collection bringing to life the characters such as General George Washington, Angelica and Eliza Schuyler, the Marquis de Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, and, the star, Alexander Hamilton. Also included, are tunics inspired by the Continental Blue Coats. Catherine’s followers have been treated to previews of the designs through her Instagram account.
You’re not gonna need to know how to say no to this, because were all screaming HELL YES! The fun for Elhoffer designs did not stop there. Lauren Elisabeth Photography teamed up with Elhoffer when it was time to showcase the collection. During the showcase the models listened, sang along and danced to the soundtrack while recreating popular scenes and images that have been wetting fans appetite for the show.
