The BFC Scholars Ifeanyi Okwuadi, Latifa Neyazi and Jeongmin Ji were mentored by fashion designer Jenny Packham to create fabulous period costumes, taking inspiration from both the Regency era and the unique characters of the Netflix show. 

The incredible costumes were worn by the stars of season two, including Luke Thompson (Benedict Bridgerton), Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton), Adjoa Andoh (Lady Danbury), Charithra Chandran (Edwina Sharma), Golda Rusheuvel (Queen Charlotte) and Ruth Gemmell (Lady Violet Bridgerton), who were all photographed by Christina Ebenezer.  

Last year, Netflix also partner with BFC Scholars and carried out the same photoshoot with the season one cast.

In an interview with Harpers Bazaar, designer Ifeanyi Okwuadi said: ‘I translated the aesthetic into my looks by exploring the narratives of both Benedict and Colin Bridgerton’s storylines, interests and personal aesthetics to provide a starting point. 

‘I then looked into ways to visually express narratives using a method of print called cyanotype printing, which consists of creating an emulsion made from iron-based materials, coated on a natural fibre base fabric, and exposing the coated fabric to the sun.’  

Jeongmin Ji added: ‘Even though new trends and styles come along every day, people are fascinated by historical fashion like in Bridgerton’s Regency era. 

‘The strong, but pretty, outfits shown in the programme are still an inspiration for today’s womenswear.’ 

Latifa Neyazi said: ‘The boldness, the colours and that it transports you to a different time and era.’I was inspired by the drama, romance and extravagance of the show.’

Adapted from The Viscount Who Loved Me, the new season is set to center on Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and his search to find a wife.

But in true Bridgerton fashion, ‘a considerable scandal’ is promised to ensue when he gets caught up in a love triangle with two sisters.  

And the new season of the show seems to be as racy as the last, with scenes of a naked Anthony covering his modesty in his bedroom and in wet clothing after falling in the river as the result of some flirtatious behaviour. 

The Sharma family make their debut in London in season two and will turn Anthony’s world upside down.

Kate Sharma is Edwina’s strong older sister. Shelley Conn plays their mother, Mary Sharma and together, they make up the Sharmas. The family of women are traveling from India to participate in the social season.

Bridgerton quickly gained the title of Netflix’s most-watched series to date, garnering over 82 million views worldwide. 

Series two airs on Netflix from March 25.
