Staff photos & current projects!

Helen peeking out from the Amelia wardrobe above, Masha measuring a returned suit and Allison mending ( who says you have to be uncomfortable while you work?)

the end of summer is
approaching ( and none too soon! We hate the heat!!!) and we thought you might want to see how we are faring.

As you can see, we continue to mend and check in our large 20's and 30's film Amelia starring Hilary Swank and Richard Gere, directed by Mira Nair - just in time for a gangster flick of the same eras that we are starting next week! We also hope to work on a 60's movie coming up - helen can just pull the wardrobe from her own closet ( NOTHING gets thrown out! )

On TV, if you are a "Mad Men" fan and watched their promos on all the morning talk shows, you would have seen our clothes.

FILM NEWS on our projects:

"Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants " Part 2 should be opening soon. It seems like it will be a modern-day flick but they rented everything from 1950's through 1980's - so perhaps their characters like to dress in vintage!

WATCH OUT for "The Changling," a 1920's era film based on a true story starring Angelina Jolie
Other recently completed projects jump ahead to the 1950's !
Keep your ears out ( it's a musical!) for "Cadillac Records." and film based on the real Chess Records, in which Beyonce plays Etta James, Mos Def plays Chuck Berry and Jeffrey Wright plays Muddy Waters...should be FABULOUS!

"Revolutionary Road" directed by the great Sam Mendes starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet ( sounds like a familiar starring duo?) is also 50's and should be out soon.

The shooting for "My One and Only" ( no relation to the Broadway show, which we ALSO worked on!) with Renee Zellweger has just been completed but we can only say that it is 1950's and that Renee was here for fittings and she is just a lovely, sweet person! We won't give away the plot until there is more PR about it!
Remember, we are still soliciting names for our new friend just click on the "comments" and tell us how you like the blog or if you have a brilliant name to suggest!
