If you're as excited as we are to binge-watch Baz Luhrmann's upcoming Netflix series "The Get Down," then you're probably going to want to reserve your tickets now for our meetup with the show's costume designer Jeriana San Juan.
Before she was tasked with dressing a huge cast of '70s-era South Bronx teens for the series (which debuts August 12), San Juan worked on a number of TV shows including FX's "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" and several seasons of "Saturday Night Live." She was even an assistant costume designer on "Gossip Girl."
After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Miami native started out in fashion design and styling and her career has since spanned theater, film, television and editorial.
On August 29, you'll get to hear San Juan speak about that varied career, including how she broke into the business and ended up working with some of the most respected and talented producers and directors in the business. Those in attendance will also get to participate in a Q&A session with San Juan, as well as network with Fashionista editors and fellow event-goers. If you have any interest in costume design, this event should be a no-brainer.
The talk will take place at Space 530 in Manhattan on August 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m (Jeriana takes the stage at 6:30 sharp). Tickets are $25 (to cover the cost of catering), and can be purchased here. There are only 50 seats available, so act fast!
