WYNN MORTON One-of-A-Kind 100% Silk Flowing Asymmetrical Black Evening Coat
Wynn Morton is the designer of this magnificent coat featured here. He is most famous for costume design derived from the whimsical imagination of the legendary Wynn Morton. the costume and set designer for numerous international events and performing acts. Morton, who lives on a farm south of Dallas, has worked previously with the Ringling Brothers circus, CBS Television and for Broadway shows. He stays closer to home these days and his particular love is the TYLER TEXAS ROSE FESTIVAL. Morton's ideas begin with sketches, which are works of art themselves.
Wynn really is the genius behind all of this, He is brilliant. You can give him your basic overall idea for what you'd like your theme to be -- Then Morton takes their ideas and, in his mind, envisions what the costumes should look like. Morton, who attended New York's Parsons School of Design in the 1950s, has worked in the industry for 50 years and with the Texas Rose Festival for 27. When FACETS by SPECTRUM was at its height, Wynn would bring his sketches to me and I designed and manufactured Many of the accessories and jewelry pieces used for this fantasy costuming. We had a marvelous time working together and creatively was an extraordinary period of my career.
His passion for design is "all about making people look good on stage." A lot of inspiration comes from trips to New York, bringing back new fabrics that come from the far East. History of architecture, history of customs and history of scenery, all play a role in his creativity. He still travels to New York a few times a year to see Broadway shows, and operas and ballets. to retain his design focus and to get his "batteries recharged".
