Emily Rebholz: Costume Designer + Stylist: Lover of sharp tailoring, vintage buttons, matching socks and pocket squares, my roof deck in the summer, clog boots in the winter, Franny’s Pizza, Italian white wine and summer fairs.

First Costume Design: Godspell, 1994. Back when you could still find vintage Mickey Mouse t-shirts at the Goodwill in Memphis.

First Broadway Show: During my college tour weekend of NYC: Phantom of The Opera and Sunset Boulevard. Classic Broadway!

First Show to Design Off-Broadway: Gutenberg the Musical!

First Show to Design on Broadway: Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.

Places of Inspiration: The NYC Subway, The Duchess County Fair, Paris, Italy, India, Upstate New York–anyplace I’ve ever traveled, my favorite magazine and tobacco shop at the corner of Spring and Lafayette, The Strand, Street Style Blogs and tourists at museums.

Lifelong Goal: To understand people through the observation of what they wear and to help tell their stories through the language of clothing.
