Looking at them, we can sense which characters have changed in the 10 years the show has covered. It may be appropriate that Mad Men’s costume designer, Janie Bryant, had her work showcased in March in an exhibit at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image: Few shows have made it clearer how much storytelling is done through the way people dress.
