Myself with actress Fiona Graham and director Virginia Abramovich.
We did not call each other as to our dress colour for the Gala evening, though it did work out perfectly.
At the last minute in April I joined my BFF Virginia Abramovich at WorldFest Independent Film Festival in Houston, Texas where she was screening her documentary short Little Questions. It was touted that this festival in its 48th year had discovered Ang Lee and Stephen Speilberg among other greats and never showed any 'stinkin studio pictures'.
Not sure where to place me as I didn't design Virginia's film, the festival organizers gave me a name tag with my profession in quotations. This conjured a lot of questions as to what my film "Costume Designer" was about to which I told them was a cross between Amelie, Pretty Woman and Grease 2 with great shopping montages and dance sequences.
We met some terrific people but my favourites were Producer Dee Mussellman (L.A.), Director Jesse Harley (Nova Scotia), Composer Jim Westlyn (Virginia), and actress Fiona Graham (NYC). Way too much air conditioning for me in the south and I was hugely grateful when I arrived back in Toronto and the heat was on in the airport.

Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
