#Quote
1(on devising the wardrobe for 'Snow White and the Huntsman') Every costume had a feeling of not quite what it seems. In a way, these dresses were like torture devices for Ravenna. I love that because I feel like Ravenna was, in a way, more tortuous toward herself than to the people she was killing.
2As a designer, you have to solve a lot of problems. Even though people are wearing clothes that are supposed to look beautiful, they'll have to do all kinds of things.
3Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth-it really does establish who they are.
