HI Terry…
I am not sure if this question will come out as clear as it sounds in my head, but I am wondering how you work with production designers? Location and sets are so varied in terms of what they are, how they are lit, decorated, designed, etc., etc,… and I would think that such “backdrops” are so key to how your costumes are seen and experienced. How do you go about making sure that relationship works between production design and costume design? How much is worked out far ahead of time? While things are scouted and sorted well in advance and ideally costume production is underway early, I wonder if you have had to make any radical changes in a costume very close to or on shooting day because things were just not “looking” right?

I know little to nothing about film making and production, so forgive me if this is a strange query!

Enjoy your time off and safe travels.
