Hi everyone! I hope your President’s Day is going well. We are off to VEGAS BABY, and are guessing most of you are too (if you are not already there). In between, the fashion, food and other fabulous events, I hope you have time to come to the panel I am moderating on how costume designers create characters. In case you didn’t see the announcement, all the details are below.
Crafting Hollywood: How Costume Designers and Wardrobe Stylists Source Characters
Wednesday, February 19, 2013 | 1 p.m. to noon
Where:Sourcing – South Hall Las Vegas Convention Center 3150 Paradise Rd Las Vegas, NV 89109
When it comes to outfitting for film, television and web programming, designers don’t run to local shops or designer showrooms for clothing to tell the stories of the characters they’re dressing. Often they create what they need. That’s where sourcing textiles and materials comes in. Costume designers discuss how they build characters through their wardrobes, whether they make it from scratch, thrift it or even customize something found. They also tell retailers, buyers and designers about current industry trends.
