There is nothing quite like the charm of an antique wardrobe. It whispers in the language of the past, telling a long and interesting story. The past is portrayed in a patina that defines the beauty and individuality of the piece. This is not to say that a new wardrobe is completely lacking in character and beauty. There are advantages to both new and antique wardrobes. The choice of an antique wardrobe versus a new one generally comes down to personal preference. But there are certain factors that can influence your decision.
A wardrobe is an essential component in any and every house. Like a bed is required to sleep in, a wardrobe is required store our clothes in (sometimes shoes included). This especially pertains to people or families who have an extensive collection of clothes, shoes and accessories. The most important aspect of any wardrobe is functionality and versatility. Customizable space is especially useful, where we can modify the space available for different needs. Hence, the drawers, hangers, boxes inside the wardrobe play an important role deciding the efficiency of a wardrobe. Apart from readymade wardrobes, there are also options available for customized wardrobes where we can create our own wardrobe with sliding doors or hinged doors; whatever is right for us and what we wear. Many companies who provide customized wardrobes let the buyer combine individual frames together to suit their style. They also let the buyer design the inside of the wardrobe, providing them with a big choice of shelves, drawers, clothes rails and so on.
Wardrobes span back many years and have come a long way in both their design, size and build quality. We all remember back when we were younger, of our parents having a significant piece of furniture in the bedroom and that being their wardrobe. For many families a double wardrobe in each bedroom is sufficient which means the double wardrobe is the most popular size of wardrobe. Nomatter what manufacturer has designed and built the wardrobe, each make all stems from the same basic qualifications which give a wardrobe its characteristics. The first being the large wide double doors which have a handle or latch to open the door. With many wardrobes, pine is used to build these pieces of furniture as this wood usually weights less than oak and is cheaper to due to this fast growing quality.
As payment goes, actors get paid to participate in wardrobe fittings. They get paid for a 2 hour call, but it usually takes under an hour to complete. Sometimes an actor will have to participate in multiple wardrobe fittings especially if he/she is having their costume made for them. As the actor tries on different outfits, different combinations of outfits or ideas for original pieces a photo will be taken of the actor in each outfit. These photos are then sent to the director and/or producer(s) to get final approval. The director may select an outfit or outfits from these photos or ask the designer to come up with other options or suggestions.
