I was asked to create this custom suit jacket for a New York City stage production. The character wearing the jacket was Satan, and the costume designer wanted to do something flashy. For our inspiration we thought of a seedy Vegas performer. There were many textiles used in this jacket. I used pleather for the sleeves, and a sheer novelty fabric with a little sparkle (to catch the light) that was backed with a red brocade. For the back treatment I cut out wing shapes for a reverse appliqué effect to show the brocade underneath main black fabric.
