"The Trade"

Michael A. Pinckney

                    "The Trade" is a television series created by Michael Pinckney focusing on sex trafficking. Most think sex trafficking is a third world issue, but contrary to popular belief it is running rampid in the United States. "The Trade" was created to expose its viewers to the horrid world of sex trafficking; a living nightmare!


                    I was chosen to serve as the Lead Costume Designer, and my duties were to create 2-3 looks for a cast of 18 people. I was responsible for conceptualizing, pulling, and dressing the cast members in each look. I scheduled and conducted each fitting with every cast member to ensure the clothing fit correctly. While on set I managed quick changes, and ensure each cast member was dressed correctly for each filmed scene.
