The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel goes to FIT

Last week, I had a wonderful outing at Fashion Institute of Technology, here in New York City.  See the link to the event here.

I don't know if I can fully describe how fantastically inspirational it was to listen to the costume designer on this fabulous show discuss her work.  It was clear that she is the ONLY person who could do the job at quite the level she is doing it, and I am awestruck by her ferocious attention to detail, color, historical research, and creative sourcing paths.

Having been classically trained as a painter early in her life, she spoke a great deal about her education, and how it has helped her "see" the glorious wardrobes she creates for this show.

I wish I could share all of the beautiful information she shared with us at the event, but it would overwhelm this post, and make it quite a cumbersome read. In any case, maybe these two videos will give you a glimpse of her greatness!
