Let’s Talk About Movies:

Wes Anderson // Centered, A Visual Exploration of the Director’s Perfect Symmetry in Films (x)

"I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do. It’s sort of like my handwriting as a movie director. And somewhere along the way, I think I’ve made the decision: I’m going to write in my own handwriting."

Creating the Richly Textured Fabrics of an Apocalyptic World
Matt Reitsma is an accomplished textile artist, whose work spans from the beautifully delicate, to heavy painting, dyeing and distressing. His incredible artistry allows film and theatre costume designers to realize their vision with exquisite, custom fabrics. He has worked on such wonderful films as Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Airbender, The Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness. Having recently worked with costume designer Michael Wilkinson on Man of Steel, the two have reunited to bring to the screen some of the most complex and stunning textured textiles for the film Noah.
MR on aging fabrics: I guess I come to a project with some techniques that I rely on, but definitely push the boundaries of those techniques or tweak them to suit the needs of the film.  An example would be for some of the principle characters I used a technique in which I bond two fabrics together which have opposite fiber contents and textures- for example cotton/acrylic boucle and silk habutae.
By bonding these fabrics together, I’ve created a fabric that can be manipulated by its content. I can dye the silk differently from the cotton/acrylic, as well as degrade the silk with an oxidizer and not affect the cotton/acrylic. In this way I could create an aged piece of yardage that appeared to be falling apart but still had the integrity to withstand construction and use

“My concept is to combine period and modern fashion in creating a fresh and original visual vocabulary that is appealing to a contemporary audience”, writes Marina Draghici about her choices regarding Black Sails costumes, while presenting her ideas in an online portfolio available on her official website.
The designer isn’t at her first international series. Draghici also worked for Homeland, Dexter and Elementary series, as well as several films such as Precious, Rage, The Night Listener or The Cake Eaters.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)

This is my favourite costume of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. I just love how much character it has - with the very distressed mix-matched textures and the pay on the classic silhouette of the 1700s. The costume designer for this film was Penny Rose.

DON’T EVER FORGET WHERE CAME YOU FROM

So it is no accident that I had yet to post this video, but alas in the immortal words of Drake “Started from the Bottom…”

Acmatic is a Jamaican band that doesn’t fit any specific genre and this video i worked on a million years ago.

I just started the fashion program at Edna (can you tell?) and JUST started working as PA in media production. 

With no money and more than enough enthusiasm to spare, my friends and I produced our very first video together (Whoi!)

My FIRST EVER Video I styled way back when (I was in my early twenties!)

*laughs*

They wanted a space cowboy look (??) *sigh* 

But we learn and grow right? Learn and grow…

ALIGNING MYSELF ARTISTICALLY

1. Unlabel by Marc Ecko

I really feel that anyone and everyone should read this book , ESPECIALLY if you are in any creative field. It really breaks down how failing, persistence and patience will mold you into a better artist. Ecko also clues you in on how to be your authentic self when it comes to your work. It helped boost my confidence a bit and reinforced the notion that you just need to START…

2. Blood Orange and the 90s R&B Vibe

Music informs alot of what I do and somehow I been getting through this creative rough patch with some 90s R&B revival. Blood Orange is right up there but I also feeling Solange, Wet NYC  and Audego  to name a few.

3. Grievances

I joined Tumblr in 2012 to put up my creative work and so far I haven’t posted much. I am so cripplingly shy when it comes my own stuff that I feel like I will never finish or never show it anyone. It’s frustrating but I been SLOWLY and PAINFULLY taking time to change that. I made baby steps since this year by least posting mood boards on main blog, THE WARDROBE DEPT 

WELCOME AMONG OTHER THINGS

Normally when I gain a few followers, I post a personal note to say Welcome and check out the Search Bar and Archives (along with bitchin’ about whatever I working on). But I wanted to do something a bit different this time…

I noticed I have made some mutual tumblr colleagues on here and thought it would be cool to say a few things about me.

I mean why not?
