About the Book
I am a photographer, fiber artist and costume maker. For the past 5 plus years I have been documenting the vast collection of vintage clothing and costume at Palace Costume in West Hollywood. I work with friends and dancers from Los Angeles and beyond to bring the clothing to life. Melody Barnett, the owner of Palace Costume, began collecting 50 years ago and opened her first store on Melrose Avenue. It is one of the largest vintage clothing collections in the world and is a wonderland, open only to costumers in the film and television industry. Every room is lovingly curated and organized according to era and color. It is a magical world in and of itself.
