From

Louis Wells and Marie France


Costume designers for Purple Rain

Purple Rain's costume designers, Louis Wells and Marie France, share Wells' sketches and the stories behind the looks, which crowned Prince as fashion royalty. "He told me he would call it Purple Rain because purple was the color of royalty, and he thought of himself as musical majesty. And he was," says Wells.

"When you're creating a look for an artist with a young following, you have to make it simple enough for fans to re-create themselves," says France.

"This cut -- a cropped leather waistcoat -- was inspired by James Brown, whom he loved and admired," says Wells."He wanted this because it showed off his butt so well. He loved his butt."

"Right away he caught onto [lace]," says France. "It was a mixture of romanticism and punk, encompassing multiple genres, just like his music." Wells agrees: "He wasn't afraid to challenge stereotypes or gender biases. He knew if he wore it, it would be great."

"Ours was 17th-century-inspired but made from Egyptian cotton, with a mandarin collar and individual ruffles down the center," says Wells. (Sketch shows Wendy Melvoin.)

"I chose this fabric because it was attention-grabbing," says Wells. "And a trench because he loved the drama and fit. You never knew what it would reveal when it blew open."

the one and only....Andy Warhol

I viewed the Warhol exhibit on display at the High Museum yesterday and was so disappointed that out of 250 prints and drawings, he wasn't included in the Schnitzer collection. Considering his final performance was at the Fox Theater, it would have been a respectful gesture to feature this print. There was even an interactive display of music samples linked with 12 album covers, featuring Warhols interpretation of some great singers and musicians, like Aretha and Gershwin, but..no Prince 😧.

I found this article from The Hollywood Reporter after my rant--
bit.ly/warholsues, plus I was incorrect in stating "album covers" in my previous post.

Thank you. That really is a Prince fan compliment, high praise.
It is me, I sign them OF4S

I have some bigger ones I'm working on, and some smaller.
I'm working on one with Prince and the Time(What Time is It?) period and a Purple Rain(Prince and the women of the era) piece and another ATWIAD piece

and a Heaven piece

It take me to deep places in Prince culture.
