Fantasy Fashion: Q&A with Game of Thrones Costume Designer Michele Clapton

Fantasy Fashion: Q&A with Game of Thrones Costume Designer Michele Clapton | technical theatre | Scoop.it

Michele Clapton worked on her own fashion line and was a stylist for  musicians before embarking on a successful career in costume design for  television. Now she’s the Emmy-award winning designer responsible for the lavish  gowns and hard-edged armor on HBO’s Game  of Thrones. In honor of the third season’s March 31 premiere, she  spoke to TIME about how she grounds her sartorial fantasies in  reality.

Did you consciously try to move away from a stereotypical medieval  fantasy look?

In a way I did. Probably the books are more fantastical. When I first met  David and Dan [Benioff and Weiss, series creators] the whole idea was that it  was a fantasy rooted in reality. There should be a reason for everything, the  way people dress—to keep warm or to keep cool or to protect themselves. It was a  very definite move on all of our parts to try and make it real, so that people  look at it and aren’t quite sure whether it’s real or not. And then they go,  actually no, this didn’t happen, this is not real!

How do the varied landscapes affect the way you dress the  cast?

If you’re in the North, you don’t have access to a lot of cloths that they do  in King’s Landing [capital city in the South], so you look very much within the  radius of what’s there, which is furs and wools and rather murky dyes. So that  really dictates how the clothes look. But as soon as you go to a port or  somewhere warm, then they can trade and you get vibrant colors and jewels. And I  try also to bring in the sigils [symbols for each house]. For instance, the  Tullys’ is a fish, and I made their armor reflect that. So there’s a lot of  leather scales which we hand-dye; the metalwork is scaly as well.
