NEW Interview with Nina Ayres, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan from ELLE Magazine   4 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Nina Ayres, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan from ELLE Magazine

Outlander – Season 4 – Episode 405

From Elle Mag:

With each new season of Outlander comes new locales. The show’s fourth season has transported Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) to North Carolina in the 18th century, inviting the characters into frontier America before the Revolutionary War. This shift has brought an evolution in the show’s fashion, which was created by co-costume designers Nina Ayres and Terry Dresbach (who often shares behind-the-scenes shots and details on Twitter).

More after the jump!

The duo designed and built thousands of new costumes for its cast and hundreds of extras, and focused on some serious details when it came to each piece. ELLE.com got a tour of the costume department while on set in Glasgow earlier this year to learn how the clothes are made and what exactly goes into each little element. Here Ayres, as well as Balfe and Heughan, break down some of the secrets of Outlander’s costumes.
Making clothes for the new world

“There was slight concern about how we were going to shoot Scotland in America, so we did as much as we could in costume to help with that,” Ayres explains. “We tried to pinpoint what the fundamental differences would have been.”
One of the most essential elements of the costume designer for season 4 is the fabrics, which vary from previous seasons—although eagle-eyed viewers may spot some previously seen items. “Obviously, a lot of the cloths would have been imported from France and England, which was great because then we were able to reuse costumes we had,” Ayres notes. “At the time, one of things people did was to re-work and re-make old clothes, so we were able to reuse some of the Paris costumes and just reduce the size of the bum rolls and make everything a bit more practical.

That helped sell the pioneering look. We’ve also used a lot more cotton and linen and patterned fabrics because what was available in America was Indian block prints.”
