THE ORIGINAL RHINESTONE COWBOY: NUDIE THE RODEO TAILOR, has expanded into a docu-series on Western fashion and global cowboy culture. The expanded series, FROM RAWHIDE TO RHINESTONES: HOW THE WEST IS WORN explores the creation, evolution and influence of Western fashion, from its Native American buckskin beginnings to its runway-wild now. While Nudie Cohn will still be a pivotal part of the story, the filmmakers are very excited to be able to include a strong Native American component, from historical influences to today’s contemporary Indigenous designers. Director Petrine Day Mitchum and her writing/producing partner Holly George-Warren are thrilled to welcome several new team members to the project: seasoned producer Dub Cornett, of Oso Studios; Native historian and fashion event producer Amber-Dawn Bear Robe; Cathy A. Smith, an award-winning costume designer for film and television who has won accolades for her work in projects like DANCES WITH WOLVES and SON OF THE MORNING STAR for which she won an Emmy; Santa Fe videographer Kaela Waldstein of Mountain Mover Media, and editor Phil Norden, who was nominated for an Emmy for his work on BROKEN TRAIL.
