50 The Costume Designer Winter 2019 ABC Studios 545 Circle Seven Dr. Glendale, CA 91201 818-553-4800 Having been in the same location for 20 years, many people may still know this company as the Disney Costume Department, but they've been the ABC Studios Costume Department for over a de- cade. Known for their high-end, quality wardrobe, they have a great Gold Room, with mostly contemporary inventory and hard-to-find Walkabout Costumes. In recent years, they've acquired stock from shows like Scandal, Once Upon a Time, Ugly Betty, and Revenge. The clean, organized facility and knowledgeable staff makes for prompt, reliable service. CBS Television City 7800 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036 Rental Department: 323-575-2666 With decades of stock built up from television programs ranging from soap operas like The Young and the Restless to the Late Late Show, the inventory of CBS Television City is replete with very high-end '80s and '90s glam from Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, and Versace to name a few. Everything is tagged, sized and priced, and the workroom is ready to do alterations. They also have an amazing Civil War era collection. Recently, they switched to LED lighting, which eliminates shoulder fade and shows the clothes off in the truest light. 20th Century Fox Studios 10201 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064 310-369-1897 In 1999, after 30 years of accumulating inventory, the 20th Century Fox costume department moved into the 99 Crafts Building on the Fox lot, and have continued to add to the collection. They have an extensive stock of contemporary and such storied costumes as those worn in Titanic. In recent years, the inventory of fantasy/sci-fi cos- tumes has grown dramatically. A new, state-of-the-art barcode/RFID- automated inventory system lets the staff wand whole racks rather than each piece individually—a real necessity when dealing with over a million pieces on six miles of pipes throughout the facility. Costume Houses and Workrooms Sony Pictures Costume Department 10202 West Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232-3195 310-244-7281 Sony Pictures Studios Property Department 5933 W. Slauson Ave. Culver City, CA 90230 plies.php Sony Pictures Costume Department has roots going back to the Co- lumbia Pictures wardrobe department, tying the company's inven- tory to the golden age of Hollywood. With recent productions as diverse as Breaking Bad and Spider-Man, they have an expansive inventory to draw from. Specializing in contemporary, they have a Gold Room, and an inventory of ethnic and period costumes and ac- cessories. Both facilities include extensive prep spaces with natural lighting at the Slauson facility and alterations, tailoring, a fabric room, as well as 10 recently remodeled prep rooms with laundry facilities at the studio lot facility. Our Partners in the Art of Costume Design STUDIOS Warner Bros. Studio Facility 4000 Warner Blvd. Burbank, CA 91522 818-954-5693 Nearly a century into the business, Warner Bros. has more than a mil- lion pieces in their stock. This large, organized, and well-appointed facility is a pleasant place work. They select pieces from the many WB productions, allowing access to a wide range of contempo- rary clothes. The large, old school workroom provides men's and women's custom-made pieces. Recently, they have added millinery, jewelry, mask making, and ageing/dyeing to the list of services they provide. The knowledgeable staff is ready to work with designers. Larry Carn and Elena La Ferrera, Sony Workroom Written by Gary V. Foss. Researched by Bonnie Nipar and Christine Cover Ferro.
