Fashion designer Liz Mitchell talks Gloss

Posted on 24 October 2008

Before launching her own clothing label, designer Liz Mitchell began her career creating costumes for stage and screen (including Front Lawn classic Walkshort,and cult movie Angel Mine). In this ScreenTalk interview she turns her attention to costume-heavy 80s soap Gloss. Liz talks about

  • the “fantastic” experience of working on Gloss over three seasons
  • designing the “over-the-top” costumes for the series, complete with shoulder pads and loud prints
  • how the fashion industry pitched in to help
  • working on forgotten TV show Seekers, starring Jennifer Ward-Lealand and Temuera Morrison
  • participating in the Benson & Hedges Fashion awards - both behind the scenes, and on the awards podium
