Hamilton’s Sydney production costumes are woven with hidden meanings and metaphors

To bring the production to life, Tazewell worked with a local team of wig-makers and cobblers, under the watchful eyes of his New York right-hand, Angela Kahler, and Sydney-based Jude Loxley. As well as geographical distance and lockdowns, the team faced several challenges, including a global shortage of elastic – a lot of which has been sucked up by face-mask production.

Rest assured come opening night, there will be no pants falling down or seams snapping on the set; Tazewell has spent the past three weeks tweaking fit and function so every performer, some of whom play multiple roles, can easily get in and out of costume, and perform the rigorous dance moves required in the show.

“It’s having the cast understand how to wear the clothing, it’s ladies wearing 18th-century silhouettes with trains and needing to appear as if this is clothing they would wear every day … like wearing [modern-day] jeans and T-shirts and sneakers,” he says.

Still, Tazewell says Hamilton differs from other period pieces, such as the Netflix hit series Bridgerton, in that the costumes are about creating a general reflection of how people dressed in the late 1700s and “[merging] that with a modern sensibility”, as opposed to pinpoint accuracy. One such example is the use of kangaroo leather in the footwear, a detail that’s unique to the Australian production.

“The design is about setting up the silhouette of the period, which the audience is able to acknowledge … and then [they’re] able to see beyond that,” he says.

So where does fashion enter the fray? Does it influence a costume designer, even one working on a piece set in a particular era, about real people?

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda insisted on green – to represent money – for one of the main character’s costumes.Credit:AP

Definitely, says Tazewell, listing Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood among the contemporary designers whose runway imagery helped him to re-imagine the 18th-century silhouette to ensure it “wasn’t a textbook version”.

“I love the use of clothing to tell stories,” he says. “I am there as a support but integral to how the story is told. With fashion [design], it’s very directly about what people are wearing and wanting to buy today, and trend, and how you create a snowball of trend. And that wasn’t as interesting for me.”

90,000 Fashionable Sportswear for Tennis & Golf 2021: Photos & Videos | Vogue Ukraine

While team sports became less popular during the pandemic, other sports such as tennis and golf have gained new following. Unsurprisingly, luxury brands and retailers are increasingly releasing collections inspired by a tennis or golf aesthetic that can be worn both on and off the court.

The history of the relationship between haute couture, golf and tennis goes back a long way.Lacoste was founded back in the 1930s by French star athlete Rene Lacoste and has grown into a luxury brand over the years. Ralph Lauren is the Official Partner of tennis tournaments such as Wimbledon, the US Open and Australian Open, and the Professional Golfers Association. However, a new wave of brands such as Casablanca, Alex Eagle Sporting Club and Manors are also starting to release sports-inspired collections without focusing on the technical characteristics of the apparel.

Major online retailer Net-a-Porter responds to the growing interest in outdoor and specialized sports. “Our tennis positions have been in great demand among clients over the past few years,” says Senior Fashion Editor Libby Page. “Traditional white garments and combination tops and skirts from brands such as L’Etoile Sport, Nike and Tory Sport are especially in demand.”

In the meantime, Mr Porter, under its own brand Mr P, has presented a golf collection for young players and those who dislike the sport but follow the trend towards preppy style, thus signaling a change in youth attitudes towards these sports. “It doesn’t have to be all-technical lycra or functional clothing – it’s about pure elegance,” says Mr Porter’s style director, Oli Arnold. Mr P’s customers are between the ages of 25 and 55, he says, who will wear the collection in different ways, from time to time and off the field, as golf apparel in general has had an aesthetic impact on menswear.

Manors

The acclaimed luxury brand Casablanca is largely inspired by tennis. According to founder Sharaf Tazher, the label was launched in 2018 and since then has 250 outlets worldwide, including Mr Porter, MatchesFashion and Browns. The brand was the winner of the LVMH Prize in 2020 and launched womenswear this January. “I grew up with a mix of luxury and sportswear,” says Tajer. – Tennis has always fascinated me. It’s a super elegant sport. ” In addition to tennis, the brand is turning to other once-elite sports, from skiing to Formula 1, giving the collection a range of sports motifs to play with in terms of design.

Gen Z popularity

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) reported that its membership increased 22% in 2020 to 22 million Americans. Gen Z role models like tennis players Naomi Osaka (23) and Corey Gauff (17) inspire young audiences. Osaka has been the cover star of American Vogue and will co-chair the Met Gala this year. Gauff is the face of the latest Casablanca / New Balance collaboration.

In terms of golf, according to the National Golf Foundation of America, three million Americans first took up the sport in 2020, with a large percentage of them young. When it comes to golf, the role model for youth is millennial heartthrob Niall Horan, who became famous in One Direction. They launched a golf consulting company for young players. Another musician, rapper Macklemore, launched the Bogey Boys golf apparel line.Manors is a new brand whose concept and aesthetics are also inspired by golf. It has filled a gap in the fashion market for this sport for Gen Z. It is also important to mention that Manors, Mr P and other brands are altering workwear details to keep up with fashion trends, from slightly elongated collars to more oversized chinos.

The role of sports and fitness spaces

Stylist and designer Alex Eagle founded the Alex Eagle Sports Club in 2020.This is a physical club in London’s Soho, which also features the Eagle clothing line. At her club, tennis aesthetics are combined with a variety of sports and leisure activities. “I always try to make luxury affordable. I want the sport, which used to seem like something you can only dream of, also become more open to different people, ”she says. Before the club opened, 80% of her clients were women over 30, according to Alex. Now the male-to-female ratio is approaching 50/50, and the new lines are attracting both teens and older shoppers alike.

Sharaf Tazher also has ambitions to someday create a physical sports club and for Casablanca clients with the aim of building a community brand: “I like to think that one day our clients will be able to gather in the real world – at the local tennis club.”

Over the 6-year history of the Russian stage of the BMW Golf Cup International, it has gained popularity among the Russian audience as one of the most prestigious golf tournaments among amateurs. Russian athletes have managed to achieve significant results at the international level.Thus, the winner of the Russian stage of the 2006 tournament, Artem Nesterov, took 4th place in the final competitions held at the prestigious Fancourt club in South Africa. Similar tournaments under the auspices of BMW are held every year in many countries of the world, such as Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Japan, etc.

Whitsunday, Australia

Australia is the most beach country in the world. The number of beach areas in this state is several thousand with a length of hundreds of kilometers.Rest in the resorts of Australia for tourists here promises to be unforgettable, because on the beaches remote from the city, you will find the desired privacy.

The most popular among vacationers is the island zone of Australia. A group of 74 islets has formed off the coast of Queensland – the Whitsunday Islands region. Some of them have been cultivated by local businessmen.

Scuba diving and surfboard training is conducted on the islands.Almost every island has a national park. But most of all tourists are interested in clear and warm water, golden sands and coral reefs.

Holidays on the islands

The Whitsunday Islands receive up to half a million tourists annually. Tourists are offered to relax in the beach recreation area of ​​the hotels, but there is an alternative option. Go with an excursion group to Whitehaven Beach. There you can not only visit the national park, but also see the underwater reefs in a mask and diving suit, and then enjoy an amazing lunch in the coastal cafeteria.

The most extreme entertainment will be spending the night on the beach in your own tent.

The archipelago of islands is located off the coast of Queensland, but it is impossible to reach them by land. Boat transport is popular, although there are buses from the local airport to Airlie Beach. Reefs are a problem for water transport.

In the old days, these islands were not used for tourist purposes, as there was little information about them. The local natives used the islands as a resource base.They felled wood and stockpiled wood. True, now only Cook’s records and the old dam at Whitsunday Island testify to these facts.

Where to stay for a vacation in the archipelago

Tourists are advised to stay on the inhabited islands of Australia, where favorable conditions were specially created:

  • Hamilton Island. This island has the largest number of 4-star hotels, restaurants, diving clubs and modern shops. Here you can buy housing and open a bank account
  • Island Dent.This practically deserted islet is located west of Hamilton. Owner Bob Outley designed golf course
  • Whitsunday Island. The largest of the islands in the archipelago. Its length is 4.5 km. The beach with shining white sand is sheltered from the wind, so the water is always immaculately clear
  • Hook Island. The second largest island in the archipelago. A distinctive feature of Hook Island is the presence of an underwater observatory.
  • Daedrim Island is designed for families with young children.Its peculiarity is amusement parks and the only hotel.

Toowoomba Flower Festival – Australia through my eyes

Toowoomba is located 130 kilometers from the city of Brisbane. Once a year, in mid-September, there is a flower festival. This is a very colorful event, extremely popular with the people of Queensland. I adore gardens and flowers and would advise everyone who also loves them to visit this festival.

Flowerbeds

The city of Toowoomba is located in a fertile valley, among the mountains, and there is a thriving vegetable growing.There are many farms around the city and they supply all of Queensland with potatoes and other vegetables. The town itself is small, but I really liked it, it is very neat, and there are many flower beds.

Thousands of tourists come there in mid-September and hotels for this period are booked at least a month in advance.

The view from Toowoomba to the surrounding mountains

The festival involves many activities, but we visited only two – the most important – the flower parade and the competition for the best blooming garden.

Flower parade.

Probably, all public organizations of the city and all interested citizens who want to decorate their car with flowers or somehow colorfully represent their association in a different way participate in the flower parade.

Some cars decorated with flowers are just a work of art

Most of the cars are very intricately decorated with artificial flowers, but there were some that were decorated with real flowers too. For example, this car, in the shape of a swan, represents the local council and it was decorated with fresh flowers.

As I watched this parade, I thought about how many interests Australians have other than work. What they just do not do in their free time, while uniting in interest groups. Here is the golf association.

Golf Association – Flower Parade

Or a huge number of Falung Gong followers (an offshoot of Buddhism, I think), a group of roller skaters.

Toowoomba- flower parade

There were also several ethnic organizations – the Thai people had very beautiful costumes, and the Vietnamese had a colorful dragon.

Vietnamese Ethnic Association

The parade went on for an hour and a half, and every three minutes there was a new car, and I even lost count of how many participants there were in this parade. All cars are decorated with flowers in different ways, very bright and colorful. So much imagination is needed to decorate this way, this is something. But since this festival has already been held 62 times, I think gradually year after year, they are gaining experience in decorating the parade.

Church car

Having watched the parade once, the second time I might not have gone 130 kilometers to look at it.

Garden competition

But another event – a garden competition and the opportunity to see the winners, made a strong impression on me and wanted to come again and again, and not for one day.

Spring in Toowoomba – everything is buried in flowers

This year we came for one day, and it took us two and a half hours each way. It definitely makes sense to book a motel room and it is best to do it three months before the festival, because there are no vacant hotels during the festival.

Bench in the garden

The easiest way to find out when the next festival will be is by typing in Google – festival of flowers Toowoomba 2012. In September 2012 it will be September 21-30.

Blooming Garden

Any resident of Toowoomba who is ready to show his garden to the public can participate in this competition. The competition has several categories – small garden, medium garden and large garden. Large this means a plot of more than 10 acres. It may well be several hectares.

Beds with flowers

Due to lack of time, I saw only four gardens – winners in the small and medium garden section.

As usual, I was deeply impressed by the ease with which the inhabitants of the city open their gardens and houses for viewing by those who wish. Thousands of people visit these gardens. There are crowds walking around and in order to photograph at least something, I had to guess the moment so that the minimum number of people was in the frame. Sometimes you just don’t get crowded.

Beds with flowers – and red azalea

I did not find the addresses of these gardens on the Internet. The addresses of the participants and winners are published in the local newspaper – The Chronicle.We bought this newspaper from the tourist information center – Toowoomba Visitor Information Center, 86 James Street (Warrego Highway).

It is generally better to start your visit to Toowoomba from this place. In addition to the map with the addresses of the gardens, there you can get absolutely free maps of the city, the schedule of various festival events, etc. The festival is well organized. Again, many years of experience make a difference.

Visiting the gardens, by the way, is also free.

Cherry blossoms

Well, the gardens themselves are of course of indescribable beauty.

September in Queensland is in full swing with azaleas and cherries everywhere. The festival was organized at this time for a reason. I photographed flower beds – the whole city is decorated with such bright flower beds.

Beds with flowers – the whole city is decorated with them

We also managed to stop by the observation deck in Toowoomba. Picnic Point Park. 164 Tourist Road Toowoomba, Queensland 4350

View of the valleys from the Picnic Point Park

Very beautiful views from the mountain to the valley and a very picturesque waterfall.On the occasion of the festival, there was an orchestra and some other events. We didn’t have enough time for them.

Waterfall. Picnic Point Lookout Park

Brindabella Gardens

Brindabella Gardens

Just before our departure, we drove into a beautiful garden on the outskirts of the city. I read about him on the Internet when I was looking for roses. The fact is that Brisbane has a very beautiful rose park – I wrote about it – Brisbane Parks – New Farm. I walked there more than once and I really liked one variety of roses – Toowoomba rose – always beautiful, always in bloom.I looked on the Internet where I can buy it and read about this garden. This is a garden for all kinds of special events, weddings, etc. In addition, they have a small rose nursery and grow and sell rose seedlings themselves. I love roses, I have a couple of dozen varieties in my garden and I really wanted to visit them and buy this variety.

The garden is unusually beautiful, if you are in Toowoomba, I highly recommend visiting. Their website is Brindabella Country Gardens. Unfortunately, when we were there, the roses had not bloomed yet, it is much cooler in the mountains than in Brisbane.It would be interesting to go there in October and look at the roses. But on the other hand, cherries and azaleas bloom there in September – incredibly beautiful.

Brindabella Garden – Azaleas in Bloom

They advertise their roses as specially bred for the hot Queensland climate, roses with no black spots on their leaves. I bought 4 varieties from them. And one of them – Brindabella bouquet – is really very resistant to diseases of roses. Beautiful bush of white roses.

Their address is Brindabella Country Gardens, New England Highway, Mt Kynoch QLD 4350, (07) 4696 8440

Brindabella Garden – Cherry Blossom

Here’s a good website on what to see in Toowoomba, because I’ve only seen a very small part.What to see in the city of Toowoomba.

There are a lot of photos in this article, if you click on any of them – the photo opens in an enlarged version.

Australia: The Deadly Continent

Every Australian animal wants to kill you. Well, not necessarily you – any person will suit these creatures. The statement, no doubt, loud, but true. This continent is only considered civilized.In fact, there is about the same civilization here as on the desert plains of Central Africa. In the same Africa, the traveler risks dying in the mouth of a completely understandable lion. Or a rhino, or a spear that a Maasai warrior throws at him out of boredom. All this is a well-known, unpleasant, but still not the most frightening death.

Australia has a lot to stake. Here, the unlucky tourist is met not by tigers and rhinos, but by giant deadly birds, giant (this definition can be safely added to almost all creatures living here) snakes, crabs that look like the fiends of hell, and spiders that look like aliens from the planet of horror.Sharks and deadly insects? Still would! In general, if you are all planning a trip to the antipodes, we advise you to look at our selection and think again. No photoshop. A solid truth that frightens any reasonable person to gray hair.

Real shot from local television, SkyNews. The shark swam into the pool adjacent to the golf course. The film crew was there not by chance: the day before, the same shark had a great bite by a player who accidentally dropped the ball into the water.

Of course, it’s very interesting to see who wins. But not enough to risk your life for it!

A standard warning posted on a fairly common city beach. Especially for those bathers without fear and reproach, who are not only knee-deep in the sea, but also their own life.

Nothing interesting, the dog caught a shark. And eats. And looks at the photographer. Maybe this is his last photo?

This is not a log. This is a crocodile, peacefully swimming in the coastal waters for its business.We don’t even want to think what kind of things this creature can have on a city beach full of children.

This crocodile is less fortunate. He was eaten by a snake. Crocodile! Still thinking about traveling to Australia?

Yes, buffaloes can attack a car here. And, most likely, they will not miss the chance.

Hello, cassowary. For reference: cassowaries are vile, vindictive birds that run faster than a cheetah. With a paw, the cassowary is able to rip the stomach of a person. A theory confirmed by sad practice.

This pile contains several pieces of granite, three spider eggs, and two jellyfish. A mindfulness test – whoever does not guess, risks losing his hand.

Who eats whom is completely incomprehensible. Or is it just interspecies sex? A-ah-ah!

Difficult choice – to take off this creature or immediately chop off the leg. Mantis mutant: return of the villain. Indeed, there are far more hospitable places in the world than this distant continent!

The signature in the original source states that this crocodile is called “Satan.”I wonder why.

Another photo, in which it is completely unclear who caught whom and is now eating. It is still unclear why the photographer has not yet fled in panic. From this place. From this country. From this continent.

Set sail or leave them to hell? Today, guys, we paddle to land. Unless, of course, no one has eaten the oars yet.

An entry from the author’s blog reads: “Two hours. It took me exactly two hours to have dinner in good company – it took these creatures two hours to make me walk home on foot. “In general, if you are already going to Australia, then choose your parking wisely. Suddenly it will help.
