Pivot Runway Show

I recently had the opportunity to create the production design for an amazing collection. The venue was at the Helen Mills in midtown in this multi-purpose room that we had wanted to convert completely. The staff was very nice and the resources limited, but overall it came out well. The clothes were beautiful. For more info, look up Sukeina International.

Ann Maskrey found herself cast in the role of costume designer overnight on the set of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Having worked as a costume cutter for much of her career – most notably for Batman Begins (2005) and Alice in Wonderland (2010) – Maskrey had turned down many other projects to travel to the New Zealand set to originally take a different position within the costume department. “I really wanted to go to New Zealand and work on the film,” said Maskrey. “It is the sort of project I love doing and have had a lot of experience with,

Costume Designer Joanna Johnston for 'Lincoln'

Joanna Johnston, costume designer on director Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, had only a few months to research and prep for the film. She started the hard work in July 2011 and the shoot began the following November. However the film had been on Spielberg’s to-do list for nearly a decade and she had been asked several times to come up with a preliminary budget. “That long build-up process helped me think out my strategy,” she said. Johnston, who has worked on five previous films with the director going back to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989, found there wasn’t much available from the world of costume houses that was quite right, “because when Hollywood got into its rhythm in the 1930s and 1940s, clothes were heavily tailored in historical pictures, including most recreations of the Civil War era. But what men really wore in the 1860s was not heavily tailored at all.” And the cast is overwhelming male in the movie, with Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president – brilliantly portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis – at the center. A few outfits from the period were found in “a worldwide gather.” Key was coming upon some of Lincoln’s original clothing stored in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. A trove of period photographs was her fallback. Photography had just been introduced in the mid-19th century and it quickly gathered momentum across all strata of the population. “Everyone was getting their picture taken, so that was my main resource, because so much information was contained in those photos. Lincoln himself realized the power of the photograph and was extensively photographed by Matthew Brady,” observed Johnston.

Costumes of Les Misérables

Costume designer Paco Delgado first met Tom Hooper in Spain, when they worked on the Academy Award-winning director’s series of commercial shorts for Captain Morgan rum together. The pair got along so well, Delgado recalled this week in an interview from his home in Madria, that to his pleasant surprise nine months later he was invited to meet Hooper in London and discuss the director’s next project, Les Misérables. For Delgado, best known for memorable film collaborations with Spanish auteurs such as Pablo Berger, Alex de la Iglesia and Pedro Amodóvar, the preparation on a star-studded Hollywood film of this scale was as immense as it was intense. From the overall colour scheme and the historically accurate bicorn hats to the high-waisted button trousers and the revolutionary rosettes, nothing about the costumes in Les Misérables is by accident.
