The thing about Girls that makes it so darn lovable is that it’s so darn real. We can’t help watching thinking, I know that girl. Or even worse, I am that girl. One element the show uses to achieve that connection is the wardrobe. It takes the work of true professionals—led by costume designer Jenn Rogien—to create the ultra-Brooklyn struggling writer look for Hannah (Lena Dunham), uptight try-and-be-pulled-together Marnie (Allison Williams), free-thinking bohemian Jessa (Jemima Kirke), and college good girl Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). With season three premiering on Sunday, January 12, we caught up with Rogien after the Girls premiere in New York to get the inside scoop on what you’ll be seeing this season. “You’ll know when a costume designer has done their job,” she explains, “it’s that feeling when your favorite character looks a little different and you can’t put your finger on it.
