Just an FYI!! Did you know former Dancing With The Stars costume maker Randall Christensen designed Meryl Davis and Charlie White’s costumes for the Olympics? This is so cool. Read on….
“The Olympic stage is the biggest stage in the world. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”
In a workshop full of sequins, sashes, and all things that sparkle, Christensen is creating works of art.
United States ice dancers Meryl Davis and her partner Charlie White are showing off Randall’s designs on the ice in Sochi. Randall says he was moved to tears by the pair in rehearsals.
“All of a sudden I felt something on my cheek, and realized it was tears. I was crying, I was so proud.”
He believes getting the outfits just right is crucial for the athletes.
“Everything is riding on their look when they take the ice. The hair, the makeup, your presentation, fingernails, everything, including the costume sets the tone before you have to back it up with your skating.”
Randall hopes he provides the tools needed to be the best.
“If I can help you feel that way when you take the floor or take the ice, my job is done, and I have you on your way to being successful, I think.”
He did such a good job. I’m loving their costumes. More at ABC15. Don’t forget, Meryl and Charlie skate this weekend. For more details, see this link at Pure Derek Hough.
