DRESS UP MAURIZIO!

Costume Design for the Band Maurizio Presidente !

This project is about the design of costumes for stage performances for the berlin based band Maurizio Presidente! It has been realized by Emma France in 2013.

The musicians needed outfits to add a new layer in their show that enhances their musical expression. By underlining their sound with a strong visual appearence their concert becomes more of a “Gesamtkunstwerk” (complete work of art).

Each musician should get an individually concieved costume but the overall image of the group should at the same time give an uniform aesthetic impression. Furthermore the outfits should be comfortable, chic, old fashioned, beautiful and funny.

After finding the right pieces on flea markets and second hand shops each garment was customized by adding details, that gave a personal note and made the pieces unique. Some pieces have been entirely taylored.
