Ballet Thriller: Multimedia in Fashion Reporting


(I found this photo from Brook Hagel’s blog, Fabulous Doodles.)

‘We’re going to see every horror film that we can rent or watch. “

-Kate and Laura Mulleavy

I just read this interview with the Black Swan official designer, Amy Westcott.  Apparently, Westcott and the Mulleavy sisters are in the middle of a fashion controversy surrounding the credit for costume designer for Black Swan.

In this video, below, designer sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte (sketches above), discuss the costumes they designed for Black Swan with Melena Ryzik for the New York Times: No mention of Amy Westcott at all.

I’ve been searching for good examples of multimedia fashion news features–and came across this fun one but I didn’t realize what I was missing when I first watched the video.

I never would have known that Westcott was involved at all had I not done a little searching online. Check out this piece for more info: Black Swan Costume Designer Bites Back.
