A few years ago when we were slated to go to Sundance for our work on the opening night film, I daydreamed about asking Isabel Toledo to make me a suit for my stroll down the red carpet.
We had worked together (with her husband/collaborator Ruben) on a 30 minute film about haute couture and I helped them out with some other stuff.
Even if could've afforded it before (with my imaginary friend discount), there's little chance I could scrounge up the scratch now, since she designed Michelle Obama's inauguration dress.
Here's a clip from FashioNation, this features Sonia Rykiel. It was designed by Ruben Toledo, most of this animation is by Mary Varn.
