First (and fun!) exercise called a "Design Consequence" in which we chose at random a performer, a character for the performer to be dressed as, a prop, and two specific costume pieces. We are then given two hours to research each given pieces and develop them into one design.
ASHES TO ASHES EP. 1
Each final design is over many iterations and ideas that were explored. Here is an example of the final Clown (left) next to a sketch ( right) that was then merged with aesthetics of the original "Ashes to Ashes" Clown.
After loads of research on film, costume design, practicalities, budgeting, and production, I designed costumes for multiple characters for a remake of the BBC show "Ashes to Ashes." Above are selected designs for "Ashes to Ashes" now "directed by" Steven Soderbergh with a $70.000 budget. I studied Soderbergh's work and David Bowie and his original "Ashes to Ashes" single. To develop designs, I studied fabrics, breaking down, color, contemporary costume and fashion of the 1980s.
