custom-made curtain with 11,000 Swarovski crystals opens on Motown: The Musical at the Lunt-Fontanne
Theater in New York.
The story focuses on the life of Berry Gordy, a
boxer turned music mogul who nurtured and launched the careers of Diana Ross,
the Commodores, Smokey Robinson and Michael Jackson.
Esosa, the Tony-award nominee costume designer,
lavishly embellished the costumes using colorful Swarovski crystal beads to
replicate Diana Ross’s unforgettable style.
BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH SUCH AN ELABORATE ARRAY OF CRYSTALS ALLOWED ME TO CREATE COSTUMES FOR THE SHOW THAT ADD TO THE BRILLIANCE OF THE TALENTED PERFORMERS.
