Wardrobe Staff Training
Updated: Apr 13
Welcome to the Wardrobe, it is a sacred place.
Items are categorized by theme, shoot, party, and hangers are color coded for size.
Please be mindful of the garments, they have a very big part to play in the success of your event and future events.
No Food or Drinks in SHOOT QUALITY GARMENTS
If a model must drink, undress or wear a plastic cape, even for a water bottle.
A drop of water can ruin or delay a shoot
I am Very Particular about the Wardrobe & garment care.
Treat every item as delicate & priceless.
Treat every person at a fitting as delicate & priceless also.
Distressed items can ruin an entire photo shoot.
People will hide spills for embarrassment, check even if they say it is okay.
