The Fashion and Design of Rack and Ruin

Part Ten: The End.

That’s it folks. Today marks the end of #NYFW (http://mbfashionweek.com/new-york/schedule) and also the last look at how the fashion and design of Rack and Ruin came to be. One hell of a #tbt

One of the most important parts of the show was getting the chance to use a real-life high-end fashion boutique for the opening scene of the whole show - when Saffron walks into the wrong store. Being able to set the world in such an intricate way helped to set up the world of Rack and Ruin. And it wouldn’t have been possible without the kind support of Monika Chiang and store manager Marissa - who got up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday to open for us. Not to mention their PR Director Nick Steele. Thanks so much!!! I hope you like what we did with the place… ; P

The Fashion and Design of Rack and Ruin 

Part eight: MAKEUP and JEWELRY

The 2014 Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week NYC (9/4-11) is almost over, but what better time to share some of the design secrets of Rack & Ruin. 

I love movies and TV shows that pay extra special attention to the finer details. And so, even down to an eyebrow or an earring, each character was considered. Nothing you see on screen was for it’s own sake… unless, of course one of the actors (who shall remain nameless) decides that she wants to change her makeup behind my back! Pro tip: DON’T DO THAT! Click the images for more…

See what the Huffington Post had to say about my funny little webseries

Obviously Steve Buscemi wrote this because it’s based on the time I looked up from doing this exact thing at a party and he was a foot away, just staring at me with a look of bewildered horror on his face.

I’m smooth. And everyone wants to be me.

Part eight: THE SUPPORTING CAST

The 2014 Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week NYC (9/4-11) seems to be the BEST time to share some of the design secrets of Rack & Ruin. In addition to the primary cast, there was also a support cast of 21(!!!) actors and they all needed wardrobe. Whether it was their own street clothing or a ninja-warrior outfits, everything had to be designed and organised to fit in with both the world of Jolie Laide AND, in some cases, the interior landscapes of Saffron.

And when you’re working with that many people, chaos is surely to pay a visit… Click on the images* for more.

Part seven: FRANK!
In honor of the 2014 Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York, here is a further look into the Fashion and Design of Rack and Ruin. For Frank, it was… a little easier! Ray showed up with his own suit and white shirt and we dug up a nice black tie. But I also wanted to add something to his wardrobe to represent who he is, symbolically, in the show. To those who are interested, there is a theme running throughout all five episodes and Frank’s pin symbolises his character’s role in that. Any guesses what movie we were referencing?
