2012 Tony Nominations Announced: Best Costume Design

Excitement is buzzing all about the up coming Tony Awards! While we here at Pierre’s Costumes love all aspects of the theatre, the award we pay the most attention to here is the best costume design.


For best costume design for a Play, first up we have broadway veteran William Ivey Long’s costumes for “Don’t Dress for Dinner”. The 1960’s costumes capture the fashion of the period and the comedy of the play, with out stepping into the realm of cartoon.

Paul Tazewell’s costumes for “A Streetcar Named Desire” are subtle yet stunning. The muted color pallet kissed by warm golds and and reds, add depth to this newly imagined production of the classic play. The distressing work is beautifully executed!

The costumes for “One Man, Two Guvnors” by Mark Thompson, also received a nod from Tony. Another 1960’s comedy, that takes a much more vibrant approach to the fashion of the period. A re-telling of  the Servant of Two Masters, these costumes are Loud and fabulous! Bold patterns and vibrant colors (not to mention the amazing wig design)
Paloma Young’s Designs for, Peter and the Starcatcher are breathtaking. The muted color palate pops through use of pattern and artful distressing! The story of how peter pan came to be, is a must see!


Stay Tuned for our take on Best costume design for a musical!!!
