Love by Design

Synopsis: Romanian born Danielle (Giulia Nahmany) is living the dream in NYC working at Beguile magazine under urban-diva fashion editor Vivian (Jane Seymour). But when a coworker steals her idea and her boyfriend, Danielle can't help but speak her mind to Vivian and loses her job. Now on the fashion blacklist with no place to go, Danielle heads home to Romania and back to the farm in Transylvania. After the initial culture shock subsides, Danielle begins to find solace with her family and friends. She runs into a charming Brit named Adrian (David Oakes), in town on a business trip, and sparks fly as he helps her discover a passion she left behind; designing her own clothing line. Now with the help of a magazine pal, can Danielle and her Romanian theme clothing line make it at New York Fashion Week?

(relaxing music)

- [Bruno] I think the chair

should be to the left.

- [Assistant] All right.

- Yeah, just a little

to the, no, camera left.

Thank you.

Ah, actually, ugh, just

a little more left.

- [Assistant]

Sorry, sorry, sorry.

- King Kong, out

of the shot please.

Just get out of the

shot, thank you.

Bring the light down

just a bit, just a bit.

- [Assistant] Right there?

- No, leave the chair.

Where's the model?

- Bruno needs the model.

- [Voiceover] She won't

come out of the trailer.

- What?

- [Voiceover] She flipped out.

- Please, no.

- What's wrong?

Where's the fashion editor?

- [Voiceover] She threw

me out, you can try.

- I'll just go and get her.

- [Bruno] Please.

- Where's Danielle?

- [Voiceover] In

the wardrobe truck.

- A little to the left.

- Danielle?

- Yes?

- You're sewing?

- Yeah, she's saving my butt.

- Is the set lit?

- A bigger crisis, the

model won't come out.

- What, we're already

one hour behind.

(static crackling)

- Hello?

- Here this should

be small enough now.

- Okay.

- Ugh, this thing isn't working.

- Thank you, we'll get her

ready in the makeup trailer.

- Okay.

- Do you have any idea

what's going on with her?

- I have no idea.

(car horn honking)

Move, move.

- Coming through.

- [Voiceover] Excuse me.

- [Voiceover] Hey watch it!

- Claire, stay.

- I'm staying!


- What happened?

- Boyfriend breakup.

- Is that it?

Hey Dixie?

- I'm sorry Danielle,

but I can't handle

this photo shoot.

I just can't get it together.

How I am going to

live without Zane?

- Oh sweetie, let's hug it out.

Come on.

- Oh, I'm sorry, I'm getting

make up all over you.

- Oh, that's okay,

that's why I wear black.

But you are gonna

be wearing this.

- Is that my dress?

- Uhuh.

- I love the color.

- It's going to look

stunning on you.

- But I'll still look fat.

- Oh honey, you could

fit your whole body

into one of my thighs.

- (laughs) That's not true.

- I like seeing that smile.

Now, you're not going

to let Zane ruin

your first cover shoot, are you?

- No way, he's an idiot.

- That's the spirit!

I worry about her.

When was the last time she ate?

- I don't know, last August?

- Well, get her a protein bar

and clean up her mascara

as quick as you can.

We don't mind if

she's a little dewy.

- Okay.

- Okay.

- [Hairdresser] You

look lovely, honey.

- Dixie, I'll see you in five.


Perfect, okay, thank you.

- [Hairdresser] Okay, honey,

let's get those

pin curls back in.

- Okay, we're back on.

- Oh, you're my hero.

- When are photographers

going to embrace the fact

that real women weigh

more than 80 pounds?

- I hear that.

- Whoa, hang on there, handsome.

- I need to see Dixie.

- Not on your life, Claire,

park Zane at craft

service, and tell Pam

to get him some flowers

to give to Dixie

after she's finished

the first set up.

- Flowers, cool good

idea, thank you.

- [Danielle] Yeah.

- [Claire] Yes.

(phone ringing)

- [Danielle] Hello?

- [Voiceover] Pumpkin?

- Mom, I can't talk.

- [Voiceover] It's important.

- Is anyone dying?

- [Voiceover] Not yet.

But your grandmother

won't live forever.

- I gotta go.

- [Voiceover] You don't

have one minute to talk

to your mother calling

you from Romania?

- I'm sorry Mom, go ahead.

- [Voiceover] Thank you.

You know your

grandmother's goat?

- Vivien's on her way.

- What?

- She's got the

clients with her.

- Mom, I have to go, bye.

(upbeat music)

Let's go, let's go.

We have to get the first shot

off before Vivien gets here.

Come on.

- Okay, okay, hey!

- Side door, side door.
