Stunning Costumes In Zac Brown Band’s New Video Designed By Brown’s Own Wife

Our Country

Sure, it's easy to be mesmerized by the Zac Brown Band's new video for "Goodbye In Her Eyes"--the lush colors, old-time circus theme, and romantic vibe make for one of this year's loveliest country clips overall. However, there's actually a cool backstory behind the making of the production, as well. The band didn't hire an outside wardrobe stylist to see to the female lead's intricate costume designs--they kept this job in the family. Zac Brown's wife, Shelly, handled it all herself!

Shelly Brown, a stylist and avid fashionista, carefully researched images of circuses and carnivals as well as vintage fashion looks to come up with a unique look for actress Jaime Murray. Brown also took care of wardrobe for the band itself--all the other performers in the video are real circus workers, and are dressed in their own clothes.

After coming up with a slate of design ideas--and with particular inspiration from images of the beautiful accused World War I spy Mata Hari--Brown then got down to business actually sewing and assembling a variety of custom costumes Murray would wear. (By the way, she did all of this late at night after putting her four daughters to bed--talk about a true working mom!)

Brown used everything from material from her favorite local fabric store to a bathrobe from her own closet to create the dramatic looks you see here. Her personal favorite? The patchwork skirt and bustier outfit.
