Huddled in her hotel room in 2019 as Hurricane Barry raged over New Orleans, costume designer Denise Wingate spent the day devouring Daisy Jones & The Six. Her friend, producer Michael Nelson, had recommended she read it for her next project. He knew as an ex-club kid on the Sunset Strip who toured with the Bangles for a year, she would be perfect for the job. "It was so up my alley," says Wingate. To encapsulate the rock culture of the '70s, Wingate extensively researched all the era's hit bands and built a huge bound book. She had never met co-creators/executive producers Scott Neustldter and Michael H. Weber until the interview, nor had she worked for Amazon or Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine Productions. "They were blown away by my presentation and said, 'This is the show!'" (L-R): Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree, Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne, Riley Keough as Daisy Jones.
