Summary "This landmark book celebrates 100 years of the costume designer's contribution to the cinematic storytelling. Rocking the conventions of what is considered 'costume', Hollywood Costume reveals what is hidden in plain sight: that films are about people and it is the art of the costume design that helps to create those characters. Whatever the genre, whether the film is modern, fantasy or period, the costume designer's primary role is to bring the people in the story to life"--Dust jacket.
