Five fashion facts about the new ‘Downton Abbey’ movie

The Crawley family is back on the silver screen in “Downton Abbey: A New Era,” out Wednesday.

And along with the film’s romance and drama come some stunning late-1920s fashions.

Anna Robbins, who has designed the cast’s costumes since the television series, returned for “A New Era” to dress the Dowager Countess, Lady Mary, Tom Branson, and other familiar favorites in a range of elaborate period clothing.

We first met the residents of “Downton Abbey” in 1912, with the characters’ wardrobes evolving as the years moved on to the ’20s.
