Costume Design - The Huntsman: Winters War

Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth-it really does establish who they are. - Academy award winning Costume Designer Colleen Atwood.

I saw The Huntsman:Winters War over the weekend, and was absolutely blown away by the costumes. Every time I see a film, go to a show or walk through a mall. I am so drawn to the way things are made, appreciating the work that goes into to every detail of all the beautiful creations. 

This movie made it no exception, Colleen Atwood, did an unbelievable job once again for the sequel/prequel. Her elaborate creations consumed me, I was blown away by every scene.Enjoying the energy of the movie as well as the beautiful pieces worn by each actor. From my own perspective this was a wonderful, fantasy piece and do not understand why it didn't do as well as they had hoped.

The action was awesome, the story line was a fabulous addition to the background of Snow White and I really loved the humor in it as well. The costumes were a utter bonus for me!

Next time you enter any where, were someone has created pieces that have great detail take a look and really appreciate all the time, energy and joy that goes into them all. It really is amazing!

My Own Projects: A Sexy Print Dress

Sometimes while creating many items, my mind runs wild with ideas. I can not seem to help but have inspirations and make them come alive. That is where this amazingly sexy dress came from! 

This dress can be worn to work, a night out with the girls or a date with a special man. I am really excited to wear this one, it brings out that part of me that is irresistible. As soon as I put it on, I feel fabulous and sexy. Great things will come from wearing this dress, I know it! 

What I want for my clients is exactly the same thing I want for myself, to feel incredible in the clothing she put on. Because honestly, what is the point of just wearing clothes. Let them be more than that. Wear something because it opens you up to new and wonderful possibilities. To an unknown world of love and greatness!  My job is done, when she puts that dress on, at that final fitting and her face lights up brighter then the first day we met. That is why I do what I do, to help illuminate the beauty in each woman that I meet. I know that she will go to work or where ever event is and light up that entire place with her fabulous presence.

Dress Making Report: A Fun and Flirty dress

This dress was so lovely to create, from finding the fabric to piecing it together. I loved every minute of it. The lace overlay is gorgeous and the sleeves give it an elegance you just can not deny. To be worn for two weddings, my client was so pleased with the outcome, she had to put it on again when she got home from picking it up. I am so happy to help her illuminate the room with her presence in this beautiful piece. I can not wait to see the photographs.

Dresses should be made to be versatile as often as possible. I believe that with this one you can dress it up or down and wear it all throughout the year.

Every time you wear a dress it should help you to feel radiant and free. Free to be exactly yourself and comfortable throughout your entire day or event. I know what it feels like to be uncomfortable in your own skin and it helps so much to wear a piece of clothing that helps dissolve those feelings. A.M.E.G.
