Cobra Kai costume designer Frank Helmer spoke with Showbiz Cheat Sheet by phone about his work on the Netflix series. He explained why he’s able to dress Henggeler so stylishly when some of the other characters are more limited. 

One of the many great new characters in Cobra Kai is Amanda LaRusso (Courtney Henggeler). Daniel (Ralph Macchio) had a different love interest in each of his three Karate Kid movies. Those teenage romances didn’t last. Amanda was the one with whom he started a family. She’s also the best dressed on Cobra Kai, and there’s a good reason for that.
