June 2009


Back in April, Teatro ZinZanni collaborated with Luly Yang Couture on an advance photoshoot for Bottega ZinZanni. We hired Michael Doucett and took Luly’s gorgeous butterfly dress to his Pioneer Square studio where we captured some stunning images. The video below is a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot.

The littlest diva, Rachel DeShon, plays a big role in the upcoming show, “Bottega ZinZanni.” Her character, Gabby,┬áis the candy girl at Caesar’s fabulous club Teatro ZinZanni. When Caesar (played by comedian Frank Ferrante) convinces the famous fashion designer (and his former lover) Dina Monte, played by the legendary Liliane Montevecchi, to come to Seattle to debut her fall collection, Gabby’s life is transformed in more ways than one. Here is Luly Yang‘s sketch of Gabby’s costume for the finale.
