Shania Twain's two wardrobe designers spent over 12 hours a day perfecting her Las Vegas show outfits.
The country singer enlisted fashion creator Marc Bouwer to devise the six ensembles she required for her Still the One performances in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
In the weeks leading up to Shania's opening night on December 1, the designer and his company president Paul Margolin were required to spend excessive periods of time on set with the star ensuring her wardrobe was up to scratch.
"We only saw 30 minutes of sunlight the entire time that we were there. Instead of taking the shortcut through the casino to get to the Colosseum, we would walk outside and go all the way around the building just to get a little fresh air," Paul confessed to WWD. "I can't say it was gruelling. They were long days, but we were excited by the energy of being part of something like that."
Marc has worked with Shania before and has dressed her for numerous music videos. This includes the 1998 VH1 Divas Live promo, which was the first time Marc put Shania in his legendary stretchy eveningwear styles.
The six outfits Marc devised for Shania's Las Vegas show took him six months to create.
The looks were mostly inspired by the ensembles he had dressed her in previously and included a lace cat suit embellished with nude, pink and gunmetal Swarovski crystals and detachable lace chiffon tethers.
The designer revealed the wardrobe dilemmas he faced when creating Shania's outfits. Among them was having to create a costume that allowed Shania to move around the stage with the two horses featured in her show.
Shania's trusted wardrobe aide Marc will no doubt return to Las Vegas with the performer when she returns for her May and June concerts. Shania is understood to have been signed up for a two-year residency at the Colosseum.
