As with many careers in the entertainment industry, you have the people at the very top who’ve made it to a place of speciality. Think Ruth E. Carter, one of the most prominent costumer designers in Hollywood, famous for her work on Black Panther, Malcolm X, and more. But costume designers are needed across mediums and functions in every major city in the country. From plays to commercial shoots to indie films to pageants, costume designers need to understand the purpose of the specific costumes they’re making and then deliver. When it comes to films and plays, these professionals must understand the setting, characters and functionality to deliver authentic, usable work. Sewing skills and fashion consciousness are absolutely indispensable to this career.
