Returning to Culver City, Minnelli hired, bringing Barbara Karinska to "Hollywood" to execute and duplicate all the original play's costumes. Not a costume illustrator, Karinska brought with her Tom Keogh, a costume illustrator. In design meetings, the illustrator, with Karinska would discuss and develop Minnelli's costume design concepts. Minnelli had been a scenic designer for the "Radio City Music Hall" during the 1930s, prior to his Hollywood directorial career.
