I just worked on the Harmony Korine film, Spring Breakers. I didn’t know [Korine] personally, but we have a lot of mutual friends, and I really wanted to work on the project, so I tried to get a meeting with him in any way I could. And working with him was awesome; he is the ultimate collaborator. I designed all the costumes—well, ‘designing’ when you work on a film like this means taking things from different places for the wardrobe. So, for the girls [Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine], the question was: where do girls like that really buy their clothes? I shopped at mall stores, I pulled a lot from designers—everyone from American Apparel to The Elder Statesman—and designed some pieces myself. I had some bathing suits designed, too, but others were rented from a thrift store, some were Playboy, one is from Hot Topic, and some are Victoria’s Secret Pink. It was a combination of stuff. We shot over a few months in St. Petersburg, Florida during actual spring break, so it was pretty authentic.
