New​ ​YouTube​ ​Series​ ​Takes​ ​Fashion​ ​Inspiration From​ ​Iconic​ ​Hollywood​ ​Costume​ ​Designers

In Film to Fashion, popular fashion YouTuber Katie Orlowski chats to some of Hollywood’s most iconic costume designers, sharing their secrets how to channel instantly recognisable styles from smash hit films and TV shows like Stranger Things, The Breakfast Club, and Clueless.

Film to Fashion is a web series that gives you the secrets of Hollywood’s top costume designers to create budget-friendly and on-trend outfits that channel their most iconic styles.

Presented by prominent fashion YouTuber Katie Orlowski of the popular series Steal the
Spotlight (200 000 subscribers), the series releases weekly from October 3.

In the series, Katie merges her love of all things fashion and pop culture as she explores the
styles from a number of cult classic films and TV shows. Katie consults master designers like The Breakfast Club icon Marilyn Vance on the original looks, before using her knowledge of current trends and knack for thrifting to present character inspired outfits in a stylised lookbook.

Bringing her vision to life in a stylised fashion show, these lookbooks are a bible for cosplayers and street-style lovers alike, showing how you can tailor these looks to your own sense of style and life.

Whether you want to show your off your love for the nineties’ high fashion in Clueless, pay homage to your favourite Disney princess with your prom dress, or you feel like literally wearing your excitement on your sleeve for the upcoming season of Stranger Things, Film To Fashion will show just how possible it is for any pop-culture or fashion fan to put together their own on-trend, character-inspired outfits.

Film to Fashion is part of the inaugural round of the Queensland Government’s Create
Queensland partnership with YouTube. The partnership which was launched in 2016 and
aims to stimulate the state’s next generation of creative entrepreneurs with collaboration between YouTubers and traditional screen professionals.

Katie and Steal The Spotlight Katie Orlowski created Steal The Spotlight in 2013, and has since developed the channel into an ever-growing, entertaining and informative fashion advice platform. With 200,000 subscribers, Steal The Spotlight delivers bite-sized weekly fashion and style advice videos.

Each engaging piece explores a different aspect of pop-culture inspired fashion that encourages reimagining pre-loved clothing with an eye-popping vibrance. Recent videos
include outfits inspired by The Nanny, That 70s Show (146k views), and Friends (129k
views), as well as lookbooks reimagining iconic looks everywhere from the 1920s to 2000s and current trends.

There is even a how-to on dressing like Harry Styles. “Growing up with a love for fashion I knew I wanted style to be my main focus but I wanted to feature more than just the trends everyone was already wearing,” Katie says. “I wanted to inspire people to go outside of their comfort zone and wear whatever they want!”

“Clothing really allows you to transform into whoever you feel like embodying that day.”
