*Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter has teamed with secondhand marketplace Thrilling on a Vintage Studio Services program.

“It’s thrilling!” said Carter — per a press release — who is also featured in a new Thrilling campaign. “I really want to know where this has been all my life? Seriously. I can’t tell you how many small vintage shops and back storerooms I have rummaged through. This idea not only brings the product to you, it cuts out all the sneezing!”

“I really want to know where this has been all my life? Seriously. I can’t tell you how many small vintage shops and back storerooms I have rummaged through,” the designer says. “This idea not only brings the product to you, it cuts out all the sneezing!! Genius Thrilling. Happy to support small business, women in business and inclusion!!”

The Thrilling marketplace was founded in 2018 by Shilla Kim-Parker and Brad Mallow. The site hosts more than 600 stores in more than 200 different cities. 

“We launched Thrilling’s Vintage Studio Services program because, as a former media executive, I know how hard stylists and costume designers work to find the right clothing to tell a compelling story. I also know that productions can save time, money, energy and the environment by committing to sourcing vintage first for their costume needs,” said Thrilling’s co-founder Shilla Kim-Parker. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Ruth E. Carter. Her professional legacy, creativity and foresight, as well as her commitment to inclusion in entertainment, is truly unmatched. We hope more stakeholders join us in helping make their productions more sustainable and supporting the small independent shops that are the heart of our company.”

Kim-Parker said that the Thrilling team “couldn’t be more excited” about its partnership with Carter.

“We hope more stakeholders join us in helping make their productions more sustainable and supporting the small independent shops that are the heart of our company,” Kim-Parker added.
