LOUISVILLE, KY - Glasscock Boutique will take center
stage in a new reality based fashion series scheduled to begin airing on
national cable outlets in Fall 2014. Todd Harrison Calvert, Glasscock Boutique's Director of Fashion, has
signed on to be the host. The series
will be a half hour, weekly formatted show based on the equestrian lifestyle
and the fashion that goes with it.
Personalities from all disciplines of
the equestrian industry will be featured: Polo, Eventing, Thoroughbred racing, Saddlebred, Arabian, Dressage and
Coaching. While some filming will happen
within the Glasscock Boutique location on Chenoweth Lane, a large majority of
production will take place on site at client estates, horse farms, race tracks,
and show rings around the country and designer showrooms in NYC and Paris
highlighting the concierge service that Todd Harrison Calvert and Glasscock
offer their clients.
Taping for the series, with a working
title "GLASSCOCK: The Ladies of the
Horse World," will begin Derby week. Locations will include some of the most heralded Thoroughbred and
Saddlebred farms in the nation, Churchill Downs, the private homes of clients,
Glasscock Boutique and numerous charity events. Initial taping for the pilot and three subsequent episodes will take seven days. "Sleep during that time is not
really an option, I suppose," according to Calvert.
Calvert is closely guarding the list
of clients scheduled to appear on the show, along with the locations and events
that will be covered. "Glasscock
Boutique has never been a store that shares a great deal of our inner workings,
and our clients are very private people. To do a show like this demands much
discretion, and a lot of thorough planning so that our clients maintain their
privacy while showcasing the horses and fashion that they love."
Because the series will ultimately be
fashion oriented, with a splash of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" thrown
in, many designers have signed on to assist in the first segments. Christian Siriano, long a favorite of the
Glasscock clientele is custom making three dresses to be worn at the Derby and
Oaks. Members of Carolina Herrera's team
have sent many items to client approval. Ralph Rucci and Zang Toi will continue to be favorites of those that
truly wish to stand apart from the crowd.
Glasscock, founded in 1972 by Mary F.
Glasscock, is Louisville's oldest privately owned specialty boutique and the
only retail outlet within a four hour drive to offer luxury designers from NYC,
Paris and Milan such as Carolina Herrera, Bibhu Mohapatra, Giambattista Valli,
Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Georges Chakra, Ralph Rucci and Zang
Toi. According to Calvert, "We are kind
of a mini-Bergdorf, right here in the bluegrass. We have great designers that hang in stock,
specialize in special orders and true couture, and have a world-wide client
base. I'm a little proud that we can do
all of this in Louisville."
Critically acclaimed New York based
Envision Studio and award-winning videographer Ben Nelson will produce the new
series. Nelson will head a five-person
camera and production crew based out of New York City. Envision Studio counts among their many
clients Oscar de la Renta, Dennis Basso, MAC Cosmetics Nicole Miller and the
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
