I am a costume designer from Texas living and working in Los Angeles, California. I dress people for television shows, commercials and music videos. This means I shop A LOT and have turned numerous inanimate objects into costumes. I am also the author of 'How to Get Dressed: A Costume Designer's Secrets for Making Your Clothes Look, Fit, and Feel Amazing', out April 2015 from Ten Speed Press, a division of Random House. I don't believe that there are any 'rules' for fashion -- and you shouldn't either!
