The Hunger Games: Catching Fire costume Q&A with Trish Summerville

From hackers to Hollywood, Trish Summerville is one of the edgiest, most ambitious costume designers in the industry.

Having made a name for herself as a celebrity stylist for artists like Christina Aguilera and Pink, Summerville transitioned in costume design in 1996, working as an assistant on films like The Long Kiss Goodnight and the David Fincher thriller The Game. In 2011 Summerville got her big break when Fincher chose her to head up the wardrobe department on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — a job that led to a deal with Swedish retailer H&M for a clothing collection based on the look of female protagonist Lisbeth Salander.

Most recently, Summerville created the wardrobe for Showtime’s Ray Donovan and took on the task of pulling together the couture-inspired costumes for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. EW sat down with the designer to ask her about what’s on her inspiration board, her favorite Catching Fire costume, and the look that launched her career.

Entertainment Weekly: How have the past 18 months or so been for you?
Trish Summerville: [It’s] been a little hectic. I guess I kind of went from Dragon, which I was on from start to finish — including the H&M line — almost 18 months, and from that right into doing the pilot for the Showtime show Ray Donovan, which I just got to see. They had a screening and a premiere, and it was a great time. It looks really good. I’m really excited. And I kind of went from that into Catching Fire. It’s been great, it’s been a lot of work but I like to work a lot, so it’s been really nice. It’s been a really great whirlwind and I feel really, really fortunate because the last few projects that I’ve been on, even though they’ve been a bit challenging at times, I feel really fulfilled, and I’ve gotten to work with such a great group of people. Especially when you look at all of the directors and actors involved.  READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Katniss' wedding dress designer revealed

Until last night, any betting fashionista would have put her money on the theory that Katniss Everdeen’s wedding dress — as seen in the Victory Tour portrait released earlier this week — was the work of Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton.

But Catching Fire costume designer Trish Summerville has set the record straight, revealing that the maker of the gown is a lesser-known fashion designer who has dressed real-life celebrities like Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian.
