As fans of "The Mindy Project" know so well, Mindy Lahiri (played by creator Mindy Kaling) has no fear when it comes to fashion. Whether it's rocking bright colors or mixing patterns and prints like a pro, the character's kooky personality is always reflected in what she wears. And that's no accident.

The man behind those memorable costumes, Emmy-nominated costume designer Salvador Perez, puts thought into every detail of Mindy's outfits. For example, did you notice those glittery angel wings on her holiday party dress? Probably not, but you must have noticed how beautiful she looked in it!

Here, Perez spills his secrets behind the show's signature style:

Kaling has been a huge supporter of Perez, rocking his original designs both on the show and on the red carpet.

"Very cool to be on [People's] Best Dressed List, but even cooler that 4 of the looks are custom made by my costume designer @salvadorperezcostumes. ❤️❤️❤️" Kaling recently posted on Instagram.

Why is she such a fan? "It's so hard to look playful or myself at a mega-fancy event," she wrote in another Instagram caption. "And Sal just gets it."

"The Mindy Project" Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 15 on Hulu.
