The aquatic theme was the obvious move, and this concept had tons of creative potential allowing us to use a wide range of sea-life trinkets. With all the press coverage around the preservation of Bahamas’ reef systems recently, we thought that connection would also work in our favour.” Javotte Bethel the owner and operator of Javotte’s House of Couture, has been gainfully employed in the fashion industry for about 20 years and began designing at the age of 12, later making her own prom dress.  After high school she studied at the International Fine Arts school of Miami where she obtained an associates degree in Fashion and Graphic Design.  – –  Please visit Javotte Bethel’s House of Couture on Facebook – –

Dressing the goth-punk heroine of ‘Dragon Tattoo’

Rooney Mara as ‘Lisbeth Salander’ the ‘Girl With a Dragon Tattoo.’

By Melissa Magsaysay, Los Angeles Times  December 18, 2011 It couldn't be further from the conventional period drama with the nipped-waist bodices and ostentatious accessories that frequently garner award show attention for costuming. Nonetheless, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," the American film based on the first book of Stieg Larsson's popular Millennium trilogy, is likely to attract some attention with its hard-hitting looks that reflect a darker side of contemporary street fashion.  The producers of the film, which opens Dec. 20, put together a style dream team to transform actress Rooney Mara into Lisbeth Salander, a waifish, goth-punk heroine who becomes an unlikely ally for a journalist involved in a twisted mystery.  Trish Summerville, the veteran stylist and costume designer (former clients include Christina Aguilera and Pink) created the costumes. Pat McGrath, recognized in fashion and cosmetic circles as one of today's most influential makeup artists, designed Salander's hollow-cheeked, kohl-eyed look. And Danilo (longtime hairstylist to Gwen Stefani) envisioned the blunt bowl cut that frames Mara's pale and delicate features.By Melissa Magsaysay, Los Angeles Times
