Working together with Larry McQueen, the owner of The Collection of Motion Picture Costume Design, has been a great experience. Together we have been bringing to life jewelry worn in films from the golden age of cinema.
He has a incredible collection of Hollywood costumes made for the motion picture industry by top designers like Adrian and Banton. Mr. McQueen has a story to tell for each piece in his collection. Not only does he appreciate the designer and the exquisite costumes but he also respects the artist that made them.
