A Long-Standing American Ideal

Pay Equity in costume design translates to being paid the same as other heads of departments such as the art department, production designer, and cinematographer.

We celebrate the spirit of collaboration

Christopher Laverty

Christopher Laverty

Christopher was a one-man publicity team for all costume designers. He loved film, but his passion was clothing. He showed interest, excitement, and deep respect for every inch of the costuming process. He was our reliable narrator, making our efforts seen and our voices heard... —Amy Westcott

Solidarity

AMPTP Negotiations

As you may know, negotiations between the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) and the IATSE and IATSE West Coast Studio Locals for successors to the Basic Agreement and the Theatrical and Television Motion Picture Area Standards Agreement are at a critical juncture.

Kym Barrett

Myth Over Matter: Kym Barrett

Barrett mints icons like Apple cranks out iPhones. She hit the scene with the shockingly modern Shakespeare adaptation, Romeo + Juliet, and has not stopped sprinting since.

Ann Roth American costume designer

Fashion As Fiction

Fashion as Fiction: Jeriana San Juan

How do costume designers portray iconic, real-life personalities ― especially those trendsetters whose rise and fall has been chronicled with breathless detail in the tabloid press, evening news, and fashion bibles? With a mix of trepidation, fascination, and fearlessness!

Star Power

Hustle & Flow

Hustle & Know is a new podcast hosted by delightful costume designer Trayce Gigi Field. Produced by Warner Brothers, it started off as a web series scheduled to shoot in March, but due to the pandemic, it became a podcast. “Essentially, the whole vibe of the podcast is to provide insight to what we do in the entertainment business and the ‘know how’ to get in,” says Field.

Wild Wolf

Maranda Nichols-Persico says, “Our mission is to provide a space for people to find peace, inspiration, and most importantly to connect to their deepest and highest selves. We will continue to always grow, learn, and give help to those who visit. We’re a retreat, an animal rescue, and a sanctuary. We’re going to be everything. We are a place you can come bask in the sun, and howl at the moon. In my mind, Wild Wolf Ranch has no limits.”

I t starts and ends with
the costume designer

These past few years, costumes help highlight the history of Black cowboys. Costume designer Antoinette Messam shares that she wanted to make sure that the characters would “not disappear, nor compete” with the set design.

"This show wasn't about brands. It was about style.  These girls have to be very unfashionable because they're nerds. But they want it to be fashionable. 'Unfashionable. Be fashionable.'"

– Salvador Perez
