How did you get into costume design?
It really was a progression of passions. I started off in fashion design, then found that I loved creating costumes for all sorts of random needs. It was when I was asked by a friend to design a coat for a film she was doing, that I realized what every previous fashion experience had prepared me for – Bringing characters to life!
What does step one look like for you when it comes to designing costumes for a production?
Step one is always reading the script and visualizing each character based on what I perceive their personalities to be. Are they serious and straightforward or are they flamboyant and bubbly? Once I have that picture, I can then move on to the research portion using all the input I get from the director and other artistic teammates.
