'Black Panther' Costume Designer Says Black History, Current Movements Inspired Her Work
Huffington Post - 9 months
Anticipation for Marvel’s “Black Panther” film is ever increasing, especially after the first teaser trailer dropped on Friday (and racked up 89 million views in 24 hours). Fans got a first look at the word of Wakanda and all of the glorious Afrofuturist fashion in the two-minute teaser for the film, directed by Ryan Coogler. The mastermind behind the costumes is Ruth E. Carter. Carter ― whose work has been seen in iconic black films including “Shaft,” “Malcolm X,” “Do the Right Thing,” “Roots,” “Amistad,” “Selma” and “B*A*P*S*” ―  told Kendra James for Elle that her goal in designing the costumes was to make them true to the fictional African country from the comic books while still drawing inspiration from the fashions of actual groups on the continent. .@OnSetWardrobe told me she looked at the Masai for BLACK PANTHER influence.

There, we meet a star-studded cast with Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye and, T’Challa’s nemesis, Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan. The teaser, which dropped during Game 4 of the NBA finals, opens with Klaw (Andy Serkis) chained to a chair asking Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) what he knows about Wakanda. When Ross says that it’s a third world country with “cool outfits,” Klaw reveals Wakanda’s true secret, claiming that he is the only person to have ever seen the country and make it out alive.  “Explorers have searched for it, called it El Dorado,” Klaw growls. “They looked for it in South America, but it wa...
