Inspiration: Costuming

No video of photo for today’s inspiration, although I will leave you all with a quote from Sachico Ito, a Japanese costume designer.

People place too much emphasis on looking thin. They say they want to look slender. But I think the physicality of a person’s body is a wonderful thing in itself. If an overweight person wears his or her weight beautifully, that’s great!

I try to create costumes that work with the person’s body. Costumes are more about the expression of the body than that of the clothes. So it comes down to how to present the body.”

Food for thought there. How do you plan your costumes?
