Kurt and Bart
A chance meeting of art school dropouts led to their formation as the team of Kurt and Bart. Educated in the NYC of the notorious 1980s – nightclubs included – they together embarked on a career path that would take them through worlds of fashion, photography, and film.
Whether working with costume designer Patricia Field to create Emmy Award-winning ensembles for the Shelley Duvall’s Mother Goose Rock ‘n’ Rhyme series, or designing the costumes for the Las Vegas extravaganza Storm at Mandalay Bay Casino, their unique shared sensibility is always apparent.
As stylists, Kurt and Bart have worked with some of the world’s strongest and prolific image makers; among them, Steven Klein, Herb Ritts, Patrick Demarchelier, Matthew Rolston, Dean Karr, Mark Seliger, and Markus Klinko & Indrani. They have also worked with such music icons as David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, Pink, and Britney Spears.
Over the past decade, the team has made their mark in movies. They have designed the costumes for Hilary Brougher’s Stephanie Daley, starring Tilda Swinton and Amber Tamblyn; John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus; Daniel Barnz’ Phoebe in Wonderland, starring Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, and Patricia Clarkson; and Dito Montiel’s Fighting, also for It’s Kind of a Funny Story producer Kevin Misher.
Kurt and Bart’s work can be seen in no fewer than four very different 2010 releases: It’s Kind of a Funny Story; Jon Chu’s Step Up 3-D; Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s 1957-set Howl, starring James Franco as Allen Ginsberg; and Wes Craven’s thriller My Soul to Take.
