We helped honor Choupette, the cat of designer Karl Lagerfeld, at the 2023 Met Gala by creating a walkabout that was the very essence of the familiar feline including its striking blue eyes, facial markings and nose shape. Bringing this level of attention to detail into the full scale walkabout required our designer to sketch and digitally sculpt the intricate features and shapes of the body to make sure every aspect was just right.

— FASHION FORWARD DESIGN —

The walkabout suit was specifically designed to be worn over a second fashion look and could be quickly and easily removed for a rapid red carpet reveal moment. Special attention was given to the interior and closures of the suit to ensure that the hair and outfit underneath were left in pristine condition.

Larger Than Life

Our specialty costuming team hand sculpted the under structure for the body from lightweight breathable foams and layered the outside with specialty artificial furs trimmed to define each of Choupette’s features. Unseen by the paparazzi, the highly flexible costume included breakaway seam lines for easy removal and an interior cooling system with battery powered fans that continuously pumped air.
