Recently, I had the pleasure of styling AJ Rafael’s latest music video, “Matchmaker“, directed by Jason Poon. The BEST part of my job, no contest, is getting to meet and work with so many insanely creative, ridiculously hard-working people. Over our 12-hr shoot at YouTube Space LA, I styled some 20 people (4 band members, plus extras) in 4 distinct party looks…and I’m pretty sure I was laughing the whole way through. Working hard for sure, but laughing all along the way. THAT is why I love my job. Everyone involved was down-to-earth and just downright happy to be there. Also, there were donuts. Lots of donuts. Good people AND donuts? I mean, that right there is a combination destined for a good time.
Playing matchmaker themselves (see what I did there?), ISAtv, who produced the video, introduced me to fellow costume designer, Pei Lynn Juang, my partner-in-crime for the video’s art & costume design team. Like the multi-talented champ that she is, on the day of the shoot, she ended up in charge of dressing the set….& she killed it. Check out who this fabulous lady is over on her blog: Have Peitience.
