Pre-production on the highly anticipated “Hunger Games” follow-up, “Catching Fire,” is heating up, with a new stylist selected for the Quarter Quell. According to Entertainment Weekly, Trish Summerville, who costumed the 2011 David Fincher thriller and designed a Lisbeth Salander-inspired clothing line for H&M, will be outfitting Katniss Everdeen for her second go-around in the arena.
Trish will take over duties from Oscar-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky, who worked with director Gary Ross on the first film. And as EW points out, one of Trish’s main costuming concerns will be Katniss’ wedding gown, which District 12 stylist Cinna cleverly fashions to burn away, revealing a feathery Mockingjay costume underneath.
From her time on the “Dragon Tattoo” set, we know Trish is a very collaborative designer, having worked with Fincher and actress Rooney Mara to deftly create a punk-hacker look that embodied the protagonist’s gritty sensibility. We can’t wait to see what she does with The Girl on Fire.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will light up theaters November 22, 2013.
