Helping to shape the vibe and authenticity of "Looking," to accurately portray the living, breathing streets of San Francisco's fashion, the prestigious costume designer Danny Glicker was added to the team. Glicker was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the award-winning MILK that was directed by Gus Van Sant, which was also filmed on the street of San Francisco. Glicker was also honored by the Costume Designer Guild with their Excellence in Costume Design for Contemporary Film Award for his work on Transamerica, which starred Golden Globe winner Felicity Huffman.

  1. Costume designer? A lunch-hour trip to Urban Outfitters and you're done.

  2. Gosh, Pat, great job of dismissing and not understanding at all the work a costume designer does. While the clothing may be purchased, it has to suit each character and situation, make the actors feel comfortable (potentially while shooting out of season), and coordinate without drawing attention to itself--all while staying within budget.

  3. True, Ronny, but these days the title should be costume "stylist", rather than "designer". They don't actually design the clothes (like the old-time film, and Broadway) and direct them to be made. And, as I know of some of these people, sometimes they even don't end up paying for the clothes--they "borrow" leaving a credit card and return the stuff, or charge the clothing businesses to do product placement.

    So, designer--no. Stylist--yes.

    It's like calling Ralph Lauren a designer--he isn't. He can't pin a hem on a dress. He's a stylist and brand manager. Did well for himself, but these people who want to be "designers" and "artists"--it's not the same thing, even though people say it is.
