Edith & her 8 Oscars

She won 8 Oscars, over a 50 year career in films – AND is suspected to be one of the most likely inspirations for Edna Mode, the cartoon clothes designer in “The Incredibles”.  Hardworking – she claimed to work 15 hours a day for 6 days a week.

“Colour, fabric and pattern… darker, flatter and less shiny”
