Design Statement

My collaboration with the director, Ms. Bonnie Monte, started from an interesting concept conversation. She wished to create a fantastic world with a “sugar plum” quality. She loves the shiny crispy quality and the pastel palette. Also, she is looking forward to use a grander period silhouette to bring out the quality and palette. Then we agreed the marriage between fashion and Elizabethan period silhouette would be an intricate approach.
I started with the silhouettes and typical feathers from this period’s costumes and integrated them with drastic fashion design lines. Pieces such as the ruffle collar and pleats were exaggerated and brought together to create an imaginary period. The skirt was inspired from the dramatic contours of Haute Couture, and pleats were extended throughout the costumes as a core design element. Rich colors like crimson, purple, magenta, gold and teal were chosen for a delightful color palette. Finally, all the of choices and collaboration works together for this witty and happy holiday performance since the color, silhouette and texture all brought extravagance and visual richness to the audience.
