Cracking The Movies

Up until now I have focused on current fashion. Now I would like to add to the mix film costumes, how they support the storyline and themes, develop characters, provide clues, and how that relates to you!

I won't be "bashing" any designs as I know all too well how difficult it can be for the designer to get her or his vision on to the screen. Directors, Producers, Actors, and the Studio all have input, (not all of it helpful)! Rather, I will be pointing out the subtle messages the costumes are relaying, how they support the overall look of the fim design, the character, and where they hit the mark or maybe stray off course.

Along the way I'll share some "behind the scenes" with you and, of course, answer any questions you may have.

My hope is that this will give you a deeper understanding of a particular film's design and help you use the same techniques costume designers use in sorting out your own look.

I think it will be fun! I'll start out in the next post by digging deep into the past with one of my own films;

See you then!
