As you may be aware, we’ve been in the middle of a Capitol Portrait frenzy this week! Katniss’ is among the most talked about, as is the dress she is wearing. If you’d like to know a little more about this dress, you’re in luck! Trish Summerville revealed a number of details concerning the dress to THR which you can start reading below.
Katniss’ white gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta. He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a perfectly fitting project, then came Catching Fire – perfect!” she said.
This isn’t Saverio’s first time in the limelight. Lady Gaga wore one of the Indonesian designer’s gowns inHarper’s Bazaar in 2011. And Kim Kardashian is wearing one of Saverio’s hand-embroidered gowns in the March issue of Elle in a shoot that was styled by Gaga fashion director Nicola Formichetti.
We did several Skype calls with sketches to work together in designing the wedding dress. I had seen a dress he designed with a similar metal bodice, and I wanted to incorporate it into our wedding-dress design,” Summerville adds.
The skirt also has numerous layers of organza and chiffon ruffles giving it grandness but still making it seem airy and fluid for movement. As Summerville explains, “This is very important for the twirling/ spinning Katniss does onstage, per Caesar Flickerman’s request.”
Summerville also reveals who the designer was for Peeta’s outfit, which you can read about here.
