Costumes of Charlie Bucket and Veruca Salt, the characters of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, have been designed by the famous set and costume designer Mark Thompson for the dark musical directed by the famous Academy award-winning director Sam Mendes, according to vogue.co.uk. 
 
Beginning May 17, 2013, the quirkily dressed eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka will open the doors of his delectable candy factory not only to the poor sweet Charlie Bucket, but to everybody as a musical version based upon the children’s book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ will be staged for the very first time at London’s West End.
 
Staying true to the original plot of the novel written by British novelist Roald Dahl, the costumes, which took around two months to create, portray the essential characteristics of the characters as depicted in the book.
 
Synchronized with the tempo of the famous novel, the sketches of Charlie’s drained and worn out clothes reflect his poor financial background whereas the spoiled brat Veruca Salt’s apparel designs showcase her affluent lifestyle.    
 
Published in 1964, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ is the tale of a young boy Charlie Bucket who will embark on an adventurous trip inside a chocolate factory.
