About

Fashion: a prevailing custom, usage, or style.

Cinéaste: A film or movie enthusiast.

Fashionéaste: A person who derives inspiration from films and film costume.

This blog is not about movie reviews or about fashion in the conventional sense.  I wanted to compile a lookbook of sorts to refer to when designing.  It can be used as a reference tool, and as a springboard for creativity.

I love all aspects of filmmaking, writing, directing, lighting, acting, set design, etc.  All of the above inspire designers, photographers, musicians, and artists, to experiment in their work.

My background consists of film school, and fashion design. I won some writing awards for film and TV (nothing big), did some acting (alas, again, nothing big), and worked at some pretty big fashion companies.

I hope you find this blog useful and above all, FUN!

Seeing the costumes inspires me, but also the “behind-the-scenes,” stuff is great to give your imagination a kick start.

I will always try my best to credit photos.  Sometimes credits aren’t available, so if you didn’t get proper credit, let me know, and I’ll be happy to oblige.  Reciprocate.  Please credit me when referencing this blog.

Merci, Ciao, Domo, Kamsamneedah, Danke, Gracias, and Thanks for reading from wherever you are!
