We wish all our friends and clients ( and readers!) a very happy and healthy holiday, and hope that our country starts on an upward turn of unity and gracious spirit, with each of us helping those less fortunate in these hard, economic times.
We encourage all to participate in such local projects such as the New York General Post Office's "Operation Santa Claus", in which letters addressed to Santa at the North Pole get delivered.

Helen went last night to a special screening of one of the movies we worked on,
Director Sam Mendes and actors Leonardo Di Caprio, Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates, Michael Shannon, Zoe Kazan and

Leonardo, Kate and Kathy sat next to each other….a kind of “Titanic” reunion. The retelling of the Richard Yates book is an emotionally grueling tale of what bubbles beneath the seemingly content blandness of 1950’s suburban life. Watch for Michael Shannon - a stage actor, he gives an Academy Award nomination-worthy performance in a breakout role!
Zoe Kazan plays the unusual role of innocent (or not so!) seductress, and we supplied her with a 1950's robe and a bra used just for that purpose! Interestingly, this recent Yale grad ( and granddaughter of famed director Elia Kazan) appeared in Come Back, Little Sheba and is now in The Seagull, both on Broadway ....and both productions we also worked on!
Cadillac Records, which seems to be getting a lot of press, opens this Friday on December 5. We are excited to see it!
In an amazing coincidence, the day Helen went to see our dress displayed in Bloomingdale’s window, who should just happen to be there at the exact same time of the day ALSO taking pictures? The film’s writer and director, Darnell Martin! Along with another crew member, she posing (on the right) pointing to our garment and credit on the glass window! We wish the movie great success!
