Inspired by the Film


Fashion designers and stylists have long looked to Picnic at Hanging Rock as a creative influence.  It is cited as inspiration for the collections of Alexander McQueen "It's Only a Game" Spring 2005,  Peter Som  Fall 2005,   Erdem Fall 2010 and Raf Simons for Dior Spring 2016.   The Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte list it among their top 10 films.
