Frocktalkers, it’s an exciting day! My bags are packed and I’m out the door, headed to London for the big opening of the V & A exhibit. I will be posting updates and pictures on Twitter, so please take a look @Frocktalk – it’s going to be crazy! I can’t wait to share the experience with you. If you have any specific requests for photos, just send me an email at email@example.com or send me a DM on Twitter and I will do my best to get them for you! I will also be visiting the Cecil Beaton exhibit and Angel’s costume house! So excited!!! Stay tuned for more details, and please check @Frocktalk on Twitter for updates – I won’t be able to post here on Frocktalk until I return! Have a good week, everyone!
From the Guy Hepner Gallery
From the LA Times comes a great article about an art show featuring the work of costume designer Jason Alper. Alper is best known as the costume designer for Da Ali G Show, Borat and Bruno. His satirical works are on display from April 17 – May 17 at the Guy Hepner Gallery, 300 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood, CA. Here’s the article from the LA Times – it sounds dope! Respek!
Where the Wild Things Are
Oh, what a night!! Really, it was so amazing to see everyone, all the costumes, talk shop with some of the world’s best costume designers… I am at a loss for words. So instead, I will just show you some photos. As I may have mentioned earlier, there were SIX Frocktalk reporters there last night, so we have wall-to-wall coverage, and I will be posting periodically throughout the week. Here, for your review, are the first photos. Enjoy!
Good news! Good news! Here at Frocktalk, we just received the all-clear from FIDM to report on the 18th annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design opening. We will be providing wall-to-wall coverage of the festivities with several roving reporters and photographers, so if you see us coming, smile and say CHEESE! We are all really getting excited about this event. However, the big question remains: WHAT TO WEAR?!?! Stand by!
