Costume designer, Sarah Trost, talks about K-11 with the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM)

Sarah Trost, whom you may remember from Project Runway Season 8, recently served as Costume Designer on the independent film K-11, starring Goran Visnjc and Kate Del Castillo, and directed by Jules Stewart. Since the film takes place in a dormitory located within the L.A. County Men's Jail that houses the transsexual and homosexual population, Sarah had the challenge of costuming from items prisoners are allowed within the dorm, such as t-shirts, socks, sheets, and dental floss (used for sewing.)

"Some items are dyed by means of Hawaiian Punch and mouthwash," Sarah explains. "It's quite an array of characters -- we even have a fashion show."

K-11 will open in limited national release on March 15, 2013.
