Harry Potter High Fashion According to Viral Instagram Account Gryffindior

START

Harry Potter and his magic-filled universe have enchanted readers since 1997, when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was first published. The wizarding world penned by J.K. Rowling gained a cult following for its whimsical cast of characters, page-turning plot, and imaginative spells. Spanning seven books and eight movies, as well as several spinoffs, Harry Potter’s enduring popularity across generations proves its timelessness. Fans such as Rachel Bernstein, the creator of Gryffindior, have kept the magic alive through their own creative outlets.

“I see Harry Potter and Dior both living in the world of fantasy,” Bernstein tells CR. The art director first began posting to Gryffindior, an Instagram account that features Christian Dior’s runway looks transposed onto the Harry Potter movie characters, in 2018 as a personal project to improve her Photoshop skills. Since then, Gryffindior has garnered a sizable following of fellow Harry Potter and fashion enthusiasts alike. As the title suggests, looks from Dior and members of Gryffindor are the two main components of Bernstein’s fantasy and fashion mash-ups. Occasionally, a guest fashion house such as Chanel or Marc Jacobs, as well as characters outside of Gryffindor House or even the Harry Potter franchise, may appear.

While Harry Potter and high fashion may not be synonymous, its the shared sense of creativity between the two that goes hand-in-hand, according to Bernstein. “Dior does such an incredible job of evoking personality through each individual garment, which lends itself well to dressing the Harry Potter characters to fit their personalities,” she says. “There’s this thread of chaos, beauty, humor, individuality, passion, and mystery that ties both the series franchise and the fashion house together.”

In honor of J.K. Rowling’s birthday, Bernstein rounded up her top five high fashion Harry Potter looks:
