Video: Beyond her splashy parties and whirlwind public life, the fashion designer Pat Kerr Tigrett reveals how a sentimental attention to detail has helped her carve a lasting niche in haute couture.

Project background: The Soundtrack Project is an eight-part multimedia project I created to team symphony composers with local business owners in Memphis, Tennessee. The idea was to fashion unique vernacular scores for each video by allowing the composer to engage with each subject and experience aspects of their industry firsthand. The videos were housed at, adpated for a half-hour PBS special, and played with live accompaniment at a special Memphis Symphony Orchestra concert.
