Costume Buyer

The costume buyer makes a living shopping for clothes for film and television stars, but there is more to it than racking up an impressive bill on the department’s credit card. This person is the conduit through which the designer sources his or her materials, scours L.A. for the perfect bomber jacket, and pulls together the look that defines a character.

Theatrical Milliner

A theatrical milliner is a hat maker who is specifically trained in constructing headwear for the stage or film and television. This person works closely with the costume designer to create character-specific hats, bonnets, and other accessories that further enhance the authenticity of the show and complete the actor’s look.

Pierre’s Costumes

Founded as Pierre’s Uniforms Inc., in 1943, the uniform manufacturer transitioned into the entertainment industry as a costume fabrication and rental house with the purchase of Miller Costumier’s (active since 1876) inventory in 1961.

Set Costume Supervisor

It is rare that a costume designer works on location with the production crew during principal photography. More often, the costume designer designates a surrogate that will execute the design on set and provide leadership for the costume department.

Costume Designer

You can tell a lot about a character on the screen before a word of dialogue is uttered—if the costume designer has done a good job. Costumes reflect the character’s personality, culture, lifestyle, and environment; more than just dressing the actor, costumes aid the story and the performer’s immersion into the role. It is up to the costume designer to occupy the character’s psyche and reflect it in the actor’s wardrobe.
