Sasha Weiss on Isabel Toledo’s costumes for the show “After Midnight”: http://nyr.kr/1c3oQ5Q
“Toledo’s designs had to match the show’s speed and dazzle, and to stand up to sudden splits and leaps and propeller-like arm movements. Isabel described the satisfaction of designing for real bodies—especially bodies that leap and shimmy—as opposed to creating a uniform ideal for models on the runway. ‘When you put them in clothes, the dancers—they react!’ she said.”
