Capitol Couture: The Hunger Games

Capitol Couture: The Hunger Games

Costuming can make or break a movie. Even the best actors might have a hard time convincing an audience if they acted out their roles in their personal street attire. Sometimes the fashion trends portrayed in film or television actually overshadow the actual plot. Productions such as Madmen, Zoolander, and The Hunger Games rely strongly on visual impact to relay their messages. I recently watched the movie The Hunger Games [for the first time] with the sound muted. Why? Idk. The point is that the costuming is incredibly detailed. Though I wasn’t necessarily in love with the looks I had to respect the in-depth design details.

The Hunger Games’ defiant fashions were designed by costumer Judianna Makovsky. She’s the same costume designer you may have seen in the Harry Potter film series. Her work on the set of THG is said to have been inspired by Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rodarte, and Elsa Schiaparelli. Aside from the main characters there were somewhere around 600 extras. Makovsky designed over 1800 total costumes for this first movie [in the trilogy series.] Lion’s Gate opted to capitalize on it’s ‘Capitol Couture’ by making a tumblr site that’s 100% devoted to just that: Capitol Couture

I also want to mention that makeup artist Ve Neill played a very large roll in the over all aesthetic of the fashions!

I’m a commission garment and soft-goods designer. I create high-end garments for private clients, exclusively. I have an undergraduate degree in Graphic design from Parsons School of Design and Virginia Commonwealth University; and a graduate degree in Industrial Design from NCSU. I compete on a national level in competitive fashion arts. I have a very divergent work history and I look for inspiration absolutely everywhere!

Recent accomplishments: featured designer on Lifetime Television Spring 2012, headlined Charleston Fashion Week 2011.
