Hi from Helen

Allison & Masha

Nikoo, Allison, Helen & Nora

Allison and Nora started this blog recently and I thought I would put my 2 cents in (smile)!!

A little about our company:

Aside from our commercial work, another major part of HUVC’s business is renting clothes and accessories as prototype inspiration (for copying) to fashion designers, including Polo-Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Anthropologie.

Clothes range from evening gowns to separates.

Accessories include shoes, hats, purses, costume jewelry, walking sticks, parasols, fans, watches, eyeglasses, cufflinks, ties, gloves, scarves, luggage and shawls.

The company has been cited for 4 Emmy Award citations for the costumes for “Lonesome Dove”, “A Woman of Independent Means”, “The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All” and “The Inheritance” and has been featured in the New York Times, Premiere Magazine, Paris-Match, DNR, New York Post, Chelsea Now, Metro-NY and several TV shows.

I was on History Channel demonstrating the history of men’s ties, was interviewed on some long-ago TV newsmagazine show whose name I can no longer remember (senior moment!) and have guest-lectured on clothing history and also taught at Parsons School of Design.

Recent movies include:

. The Assassination of Jesse James

. August Rush

. There Will be Blood

. The Great Debaters

. Indiana Jones

. Leatherheads

and soon to be released:

. Brothers Bloom

. Revolutionary Road

. Synecdoche, NY

. Bolden

. The Changeling

. Cadillac Records

We are all getting used to our new space in Long Island City after years in Manhattan and are enjoying it here - only bemoaning the fact the LIC is getting so "hot" it will become another hip, crowded Manhattan!

Where can I get a hat like the ones they wore in the Jesse James flick?
