I just wanted to do a quick post to say THANK YOU to Saks Fifth Avenue, and to our wonderful marketing team at Starz for putting this together.
It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and experience. Everyone was so incredibly kind and helpful.
It took a lot of time and a lot of work. Finally got new fashion mannequins (that is a whole ‘nother story) Months and months of planning, SCULPTING, adjusting, SHIPPING, more planning, sculpting and adjusting. Days in the Saks basement with their wonderful team, climbing around in windows, getting the Outlander lettering on the windows, and FINALLY, standing on the sidewalks with crowds of passerbys stopping to take pictures and ask questions.
So many conversations with people that began with “What is this??? It’s beautiful, what is this show???” The sidewalk has been crowded, cameras madly clicking away, kids noses pressed against the glass. It is amazing. I was moved to tears by the enthusiastic response, it was everything you could ever hope for.
I will do another detailed post of the process starting a thousand years ago, in Scotland and finishing here in NYC. But later, gotta do the next round of stuff…it’s Emmy season.
