Costume Designers! (and new interviews coming up soon)

Since you guys sent me requests for me to interview costume designers, I’ve actually been contacting some of them and asking if I could interview them.

We’ve actually got interview posts coming up with:
*Meredith Markworth-Pollack (Costume Designer- worked/working on Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, Reign)
*Heather Shisler (Actress- Gossip Girl, Taught to Hate, Something About Ryan, How to Rock a First Date)
*Jennifer Dalton (Artist)

so it’s okay to keep your hopes up! : ) I have sent some very creative questions…

So, anyways, back to the point-I’ve been setting up online interviews with several people, and I realized that most of them were costume designers. Most times, when people watch a TV series(in my case, Gossip Girl, 90210, and currently Pretty Little Liars!) or a movie(my fav-Titanic.), it’s not easy for them to notice the details of how a certain character is dressed, what accessories they’re wearing, or how their shoes totally complement their outfits. Most of us are too immersed in the actual events in the movie, like- what’s flying across the screen, who’s dying, OMG he betrayed her, etc etc.

But we’re honestly missing out on a lot. Fashion doesn’t only exist on runways. In fact, costume designs in films or on TV series are actually one of the best epitomes of detailed, elaborate, unique outfits on display.

For example, Trish Summerville created the look for Katniss Everdeen on Catching Fire. She’s also worked with celebs like Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Justin Timberlake on their music videos.

Indonesian designer Tex Saverio designed the dress. It’s decorated with Swarovski crystals and weighs about 25 pounds.

Notice how she portrayed Katniss in the scene above-formal and proper, yet not too plain. I personally love the blue&black fur.

And Meredith Markworth-Pollack has designed/is designing the looks for Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, and Reign. (Some of the best TV series EVER.) I’ve sent her some interview questions, and she’s going to reply soon with her answers!! I’m so excited.. Stay in tune, folks. The interview post with Ms. Markworth-Pollack shall be uploaded soon.

I’m also a fan of Michael Wilkinson, who has designed costumes for famous movies such as 300(by Zack Snyder), Tron Legacy(loved it!), Man of Steel, Breaking Dawn Part II(Yes, I mean the Twilight Saga.) etc. I’ve sent him an email asking him if he could do an interview for us! (fingers crossed…)

(image above: Tron Legacy!! The futuristic look is beautiful and so detailed.)

MAN OF STEEL

(image above: Man of Steel! The costume is different from the original fabric Superman costume that we’re all accustomed to, making it more special, modern, and unique.)

Aaand last but not least, let me introduce Kurt and Bart! They’re a duo, and they’re amazing x2! They’ve put together the outfits for the music videos for ”Slave 4 You,” ”Toxic,” and ”Me Against the Music” by Britney Spears, and have also worked on movies like Step-Up 3D, Howl, and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

  1. I love this! I always pick up on great costumes, and what they’re telling us about the characters. It adds so much to a story, especially a sci-fi or period drama!

  2. I’m excited to hear about the interviews – especially Meredith Markworth-Pollack. And if you could ever speak to Trish Summerville, that would be amazing! What she did in Catching Fire made it very difficult to not notice the clothes. Good luck and can’t wait to hear all about it!
