Experience the art of costume with an award winning designer

In our first location we'll begin by browsing some of the best made and most creative costumes from the silver screen. You will receive a special edition pencil and hardback notebook to keep and use during the experience. I'll take you through specific costumes and their construction process, discussing their history, designer, maker and some anecdotes behind them.

We then move to a private and elegant ballroom space at Clifton’s Republic reminiscent of the parlors and museums of a previous century, where our model in costume will be revealed in full glory! We'll enjoy refreshments, the theatrical and magical interiors of Clifton’s and chat about Hollywood history as we begin our drawing class. While our model poses we'll start with warm-up exercises and focus on different techniques. At the end of class there will be time for a Q&A, photos and to enjoy the delights of the “Cabinet of Curiosities” that is Clifton’s Republic.

I am an LA based designer and illustrator. My 24 year career spans film, TV, theatre and animation. Most recently, I was Costume Designer for James Cameron on Walt Disney's Pandora, 'World of Avatar'.

Apparently, the story goes that when I was 6 months old I picked up a pencil and drew Mickey Mouse! Later, when I was about 8, I would practice drawing Marilyn Monroe in different costumes and poses from a paused VHS tape.

I have always had a passion for drawing, film and subcultures - and I am grateful I get to making a living out of my passions.

We'll start the afternoon at one of my favourite costume spots in LA. The museum houses rotating costume exhibitions from some of the most popular and well-loved films and television shows.

We then experience living history at Clifton’s Republic - one of the last remaining original Los Angeles eateries of the Golden Age - located Downtown.

I had so much fun drawing with Gypsy and exploring the Oscar's exhibit, at FIDM! Gypsy provided an insider look into the Hollywood costume industry by explaining everything from the process of designing a costume, to the logistics of costuming an army. I would have loved to have time to draw at the exhibit, but the gorgeous ballroom at Clifton's was well worth the trip down the street. This is a great experience for anyone interested in learning how to draw as Gypsy provides her expertise and all of the drawing materials!

Gypsy is an amazing guide into the industry in regards to costume design. She is funny, vibrant and extremely knowledgeable about what's what. The experience started at a beautiful costume exhibit at a fashion school that showcased many different wardrobes that were worn I some of today's biggest Hollywood blockbusters. The second part of the experience was a bit more hands on as she personally taught a drawing class on how to draw model with various techniques at the magnificent Cliftons in DTLA. I was glad to see that everyone was having fun and Gypsy was very supportive of everyone's drawing styles. I did not feel intimidated once during the class. Instead Gypsy encouraged me to find my own style of drawing the models. All in all, definitely some of the most fun I've had in a long time and highly recommend for anyone to give it a go. You will not be disappointed

I enjoyed this real insight into the film and television world of LA. We started at the costume museum - it was wonderful to learn how the costumes were made and hear stories from Gypsy's own experiences on films. She was very knowledgeable and it was especially interesting to learn how 3D printing is now being used in film costumes. The second part of the tour was a drawing class at Clifton's Cafeteria. I was a bit nervous as I have zero drawing experience but Gypsy made it super fun and had us starting off with warm up exercises. We also got some inside drawing tips. I think Clifton's is a must do if you visit LA - and the best way to do this is with Gypsy's class - because we got access to the upstairs ballroom and discounts on food and the gift shop! It's worth staying on after the experience and taking advantage of this. (side note they offer a large variety of food including great vegan options). Gypsy also gave us a goody bag with a drawing book and pencil. A handy keep-sake of the tour.

Gypsy’s AirBNB experience is a fabulous and illuminating look into the world of a Hollywood costume designer that will thrill industry insiders and casual filmgoers alike. As a veteran designer and illustrator, Gypsy possesses a wealth of expertise on the art of designing costumes for film. We began the experience with a tour of FIDM’s Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibit, which showcased an impressive array of the years most celebrated costumes. The collection spanned Oscar-winning prestige films and costume dramas, as well as mega-blockbusters from Marvel, DC, Harry Potter and the like. Throughout the tour, Gypsy explained the process of the designer from sketch to screen, using the costumes in the exhibit to illustrate the points of discussion. As an industry insider, Gypsy was able to offer many insights and personal anecdotes that only one immersed within the industry would be privy to. The costumes themselves were exquisite, and being able to appreciate their detail and craftsmanship up close was breathtaking. After viewing the exhibition, we headed to Clifton’s Republic for a private illustrating class. Clifton’s itself is an iconic LA landmark, a multi-story restaurant and bar with an elaborate jungle theme, including a menagerie of antique taxidermy, artifacts, and a giant redwood tree reaching five stories high. Our class was held in one of the private ballrooms, apart from the general dining and lounge areas. The drawing portion of the experience began with Gypsy teaching some of the primary techniques of figure drawing which are fundamental to the work of a Hollywood designer or illustrator. After warming up, we were presented with a live model in elaborate costume who served as the muse for our figure studies. As the model presented an array of poses, we were able to try out the techniques we had learned under Gypsy’s guidance. The atmosphere was very relaxed and casual so that even first time illustrators would feel comfortable and unintimidated. Still, the expertise imbued by Gypsy and the chance to draw a live model in costume was more than enough to satisfy other industry professionals and artists. Overall it was a fabulous experience, offering an exclusive look into the world of a Hollywood designer as led by a true expert in the field. Gypsy was a warm and charismatic guide, and the experience she has curated was fascinating and inspiring.

This was SUCH an amazing experience ! I have always been afraid to put pencil to paper and thought this was going to be super embarrassing but Gypsy made me feel like an actual artist! She is such a great teacher and made everything feel fun and easy - I never thought I would be able to draw but I came away from this looking at objects in a completely new light and feel like I learned so much - the time flew and the model was SO GLAMOROUS !!! I cant believe how lucky we were ! Can't wait to try this again and work on my new skills !! Thank you so much !! <3
