Everyone relates differently to contemporary stuff. They rely on you to do the research for a period film.
I have an extensive library – every birthday when I was a kid my parents would ask what movie or book I wanted, so I have built up a big collection over the years.
In my research, I learned that the way these twenties pieces are constructed, in one garment, can be very simple, and in others they can be very complicated. That’s what made an elusive fit that we can’t always get these days. Knowing this, I would like to share some of these secrets and use them in a collection.
The other day in the garage, I found a book report from the seventh grade that I did about silent movie stars. It’s funny to look at now, because it really foretold what my future would be.
There are people who don’t like to use other films as research, but I love it.
