Janet Hine has the QT lookPosted on in Fashion
This disarmingly charming and fabulously frank costume designer is the zing in the tail of the QT staff costumes, so every time you get a wink from a doe eyed blonde behind a pair of think rimmed spectacles while you are at our place, you can thank Janet for introducing the geek chic look into the hotel. The look that makes you feel like you are a naughty school kid again.
She started her costume design career in Musical Theatre then progressed to Film, Television, and large scale live Events. She’s styled rock stars and celebrities at the ARIA’s, Film stars and even Presidents. (APEC Australia 2007).
Her involvement in theatre costuming has taken her around the globe working on 42nd Street, Grease, Little Shop of Horrors, Dynamite, Hot Shoe Shuffle, Chicago, Oliver, Dirty Dancing, We Will Rock You, Spamalot and High School Musical.
Janet’s designed costumes for Sweet Charity, Man From Snowy River, Burn the Floor (Broadway production) Santa’s Kingdom, Full Monty, Saturday Night Fever (Green Room Design Award 2007) and recently Fame. Her most challenging experiences have been the 2000 Paralympic Games Ceromonies in Sydney; 2002 Commonwealth Games, Manchester; and as Designer/Supervisor for the 2007 Asian Games Opening and Closing ceremonies in Qatar.
Most recently her highly acclaimed work on “So You Think You Can Dance” has allowed her to regularly work with Jason Coleman, and having her mentor, David Atkins as Director completes the “dream team” for this new production of Hairspray.
