NEW Designing Hollywood Show EPISODE!
WESTSIDE STORY COSTUME DESIGNER PAUL TAZEWELL EXCLUSIVE DESIGNER HOLLYWOOD INTERVIEW!
Host Filmmaker & Producer:
Robert Meyer Burnett
Tazewell studied old clothing catalogs from Sears Roebuck to make sure that his designs were period-accurate, and also looked at photographs of New York gang life that were taken by Bruce Davidson during the decade in which the film is set. It was all part of his mandate from Spielberg and screenwriter Tony Kushner to “create a world that is as naturalistic as possible given the genre of the film.”
