Boo! Welcome to a special Halloween episode of Sew & Tell! What's everyone's favorite part of Halloween (besides candy)? The opportunity it offers us to get dressed up, to transform ourselves through clothes, makeup, and props, and become someone we're not the other 364 days of the year. This permission to exercise creativity in costume embodies the relationship of style and identity in a way no other event can match - not even Fashion Week. So, in honor of this fashion-forward fete, I spoke with an industry professional this week. Kathryn Smith is a Maine-based costume designer and stylist for film and print. Her path to wardrobe was indirect, but it perfectly pairs her passion for expressive clothes and storytelling. Kate has built a reputation within Maine as the go-to wardrobe designer, and has experience with a wide variety of projects - from national print ad campaigns to feature and indie films. On today's show, Kate talks about how she got from set painting to wardrobe, some of the considerations that make costume design unique, a few of her childhood style role models, and even shares some fantasy Halloween costume ideas. Plus, a wonderfully dark play list featuring tracks from Tom Waits, Surfer Blood, Spectrals, and even a collaboration between Dirty Projectors and Bjork. So turn up the volume and settle in to this week's story - who knows? You might even get inspired to wear your costume again this weekend…
