What is the process like when organising for a shoot?
-Stressful, but a good fun stress, I love the pressure of it all, I work good under pressure. It’s also very hectic and expensive lol
I start by making a mood board of it all, then I set on a color palette and start create creative direction of each scene, from outfits to room settings etc, everything must go hand in hand.
Then I meet with managers, video directors, we speak on the vision and merge it all together, we settle on one final idea and then we start the process of buying everything needed.
3 to 2 weeks before we do a fitting decide on everything, make the changes necessary and settle one final look per scene a week before.
Long and fun.
If you could work with any artist of your choice who would it be and why?
-Ryan Murphy, creator and writer of American Horror Story, I would literally be happy for the rest of my life, his Visio is out of this world, he’s a genius to me and I would love nothing more than to help bring part of his vision to life and learn everything I need to learn from him.
And Lady Gaga, she’s the epitome of creativity, she’s also a genius, her brilliant way of translating music into fashion and plastic art is out of this work, I know I would also learn absolutely everything I would ever need.
What are your future plans for your brand TANKOVITZ?
-In the near future I will become my favorite store’s rival. Like Biggie said, “Work so hard, your idols become rivals”
Amancio Ortega is the clothing store Zara’s owner and someone who’s business plan I admire and wish to surpass.
Do you have a mentor or someone that has inspired your journey?
-My step father, His work ethic is impeccable and class when dealing with stress is out of this world.
He is my mentor, though he is no longer part of my life, everything I needed to learn I did growing up with him.
During isolation have you been working on any new projects or outfit designs while being stuck inside?
