Jazz Tangcay Artisans Editor“Hacks” season two saw a shift in costumes for both Jean Smart’s Deborah Vance and Hannah Einbinder’s Ava.

Costume designer Kathleen Felix-Hager made use of the season’s storyline that saw Deborah Vance on tour.From a lesbian cruise to a state fair, Felix-Hager worked with Smart and the team to play up the wardrobe.

Producer and writer Jen Statsky says, “We knew it was a fun opportunity seeing Deborah as a bit of a fish out of water. It allowed us to have some fun and play with the costumes.”The designer was able to gather dusters, silk tops and beaded dresses for Deborah’s wardrobe because she had early access to the script.
