WHY "GO FOR WARDROBE" EXISTS - by HANNAH KINKADE
I started "Go For Wardrobe" after seeing a need for quality local wardrobe department professionals to work within the music industry. I’ve travelled all over the world working in the wardrobe departments for artists such as Beyoncé, KISS, Madonna and Rod Stewart, often as the Head of Department, and I’ve had my fair share of terrible wardrobe staff!
A problem I often see is local wardrobe staff provided by crewing companies based on the facts that:
- they are women
- they aren't working in catering today
- they have a sewing machine
But how hard can it be to iron a few shirts and steam some dresses?
It's certainly not rocket science but there are certain techniques to use, especially when ironing Saint Laurent silk shirts and couture leotards encrusted with Swarovski® crystals.
Dave’s wife makes curtains doesn't she? She'll have a sewing machine!
Well great, how is she at french seaming a hand beaded, one of a kind Balmain gown?
Believe me, it's an uncomfortable feeling when you've given a local seamstress a beautiful, handmade gown from a Parisian atelier to alter and you go to put it on the artist mid-show only to realise it doesn't fit anymore! Or when you present your local wardrobe person with a rail of clothing to steam and you receive a blank look in return. I've also been given crew because they are huge superfans of that particular artist, which never ends well.
