The Power Stylists of Hollywood– NYTimes.com
While a Costume Designer and Stylist are far from being the same thing, this article pretty much sums up some of the influence, determination, and talent that exists within the world of the Wardrobe Department.
The silent influence of Costume Designers goes beyond glamorous events and red carpets. Sharen Davis (The Help) and Mary Zophres (True Grit) are two of my favorite Costume Designers. It takes a talented hand to be realistic, period correct, yet persuasively influence the modern public’s tastes on sillhouettes and prints.
I’ve been working on my Thread Guild concept which brings this talent to the public and now really seems to be the perfect storm to make it happen!
