He approved it all but I gather that it was more a process of his telling the costume people what look/feel he wanted and they'd go away to do drawings and get fabric samples, come back to him and he'd let them know what was most like his vision. Obviously, as time went on, the process was streamlined and most of what he did was approve what his people came up with.

JMS mentioned once that it was important to him that the viewer should be able to tell what race something came from, just from looking so you'll see shapes and colors repeated a lot so that even if you don't see a Minbari, you should be able to tell if something is of Minbari origin.

"You know, I used to think that life was terribly unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair? If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole
