Exclusive Interview with “The Arrangement” Costume Designer Mandi Line!

Q&A with the head costume designer of E!’s show, “The Arrangement!”

The Arrangement is one of the most buzzed about shows this year – and for good reason. It’s got tons of drama, romance, and of course, great clothes! If you’ve ever seen some of the styles and wondered: “Where can I get that?” or “How do they look that good?” – you’re in luck, because we have a Q&A with Head Costume Designer Mandi Line. Fun fact: Mandi was also a costume designer on Pretty Little Liars! Check out the interview below to hear how she styles Josh Henderson and Christine Evangelista!

Does “The Arrangement” cast offer their own advice into the clothes they wear in the show?

The cast does offer their opinions but not in an “opinionated” type of way. It is a constructive and collaborative process. I love working with this cast!

What kind of styles will we see on Megan for season 2?

In season 2, Megan is engaged and soon to be married so there are SO SO SO many high end events. Her fashion style this season has elevated to play the part of a Hollywood bride. The looks this season are amazing!

Where did you get the inspiration behind Megan’s style for season 1 and 2?

I draw my inspiration for Megan’s style from Hollywood A-listers and influencers – Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo. I love Dakota Johnson’s look! She has a subtle, sophisticated, yet unique style.

Our readers love to copy star styles. Would you be able to give us one or two items of clothing that will be worn on Megan that our readers can purchase or is everything custom made?

Not everything is custom made, but I do tailor everything. One of my favorite pieces that was very simple yet one of the biggest headliners of the season was this Theory jumpsuit!!

The white Theory jumpsuit Mandi refers to is sold out as well as the black color in the same style. Or, if you’d like a similar white one, try this one from Lulu’s

Also, I looove looove her versatile IRO light pink jacket that she wears a lot this season, well as much as anyone wears the same look when you are about to be married to the biggest star in the world!!

How would you describe Josh’s style for season 2?

Josh’s style is what I love to call effortlessly cool. He is just like David Beckham or Justin Theroux in that he looks amazing in anything. I’ve styled him in the coolest jeans, boots, and jackets I’ve ever dressed any character in.

What’s one item of clothing that every girl should have in her closet this Spring/Summer?

There is no one item every girl should have in her closet really. Every girl should have confidence. I can tell you to go and buy the “it top” but if you don’t feel beautiful in it, why spend the money. Do yourself a favor, fall in love with who you are before you buy into any new trend! A confident person can wear an out of trend shirt and make it feel new!! But without that self-love, spending money on beautiful clothes is pointless.
