Millinery for The Music Man on Broadway
Design Concept & Execution
In 2021 I had the opportunity to work with Hugh Hanson as his Millinery Assistant for The Music Man on Broadway, with costumes designed by Santo Loquasto. I assisted in creating hats for the "Pick a Little" ladies from the 1910s, constructing sculptural headpieces inspired by the Statue of Liberty, and making multiples of the same hat for ensemble characters. During this time I worked on foam carving for hat blocks, making mockups for design meetings and presentations, creating buckram and thermoplastic bases for headpieces and hats, and crafting decorative elements for the finished pieces.
