Costume Diary III


             Few months ago I worked on quite an interesting project for the San Francisco Ballet designed by the Academy Award Winner Coleen Atwood. The costumes were for the ballet “From Foreign Lands”. I’ve never seen the show, so I can’t tell you anything about it, but the costume were very much like little jewels. The designer – faithful to her reputation, used completely new and unique concept to create a beautiful, flowing effect with the layered, multicolored tulle of the skirts.
      Each color scheme and some of the decorative details on the costumes, ware designated to represent a different country and something specific for their culture.
      It wasn’t an easy project, but it was unusual and inspiring experience and I did enjoy working on it.
