"...a top ten finalist from this years (Screenwriting) Expo, When Harry Tries to Marry, has announced that they will begin filming this week. A romantic comedy about a young Indian-American college student who shocks his assimilated Indian family when he insists that he wants an arranged marriage, the film will be shot on location in New York and India under the direction of Nayan Padrai from the original script by Ralph Stein and Nayan Padrai."
It's been interesting working with Ciera as I've never before had a look into the creative process of a costume designer. She told me that the character would be wearing mostly reds and turquoise, and in order to help me grasp her vision for this character's style she sent me an image file of her "research," which turned out to be a collage of fashion photos cut from magazines and catalogues like Bowen and Garnet Hill. It was really quite helpful, as words can only describe so much.
These are the aprons I made from primarily vintage fabrics for possible use in the film. The skirt I made for her is similar to the one pictured here, but with a firey red/orange collar and a black gingham waist and back ties. It will be exciting if I get to see it on screen.
