The costume design for Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories focused on the adaptation of runway fashion to street clothes for the homeless characters in the play. The dichotomy between runway fashion and the homeless youth visually represents the nature of the play. It explores the societal oppression of youth living on the streets who are constantly striving for what they cannot achieve. The use of distressing on the costumes was crucial in portraying the extent of the character’s plight. The collaboration between scenic, lighting, sound, hair, and makeup design, created a successful visually new portrayal of Polaroid Stories.
