All Kerala Cine Costume
Designers Union

A Costume Designer designs costumes for the characters in a film, stage production or television show and thus contributes to the fullness of the artistic, visual world which is unique to the particular theatrical or cinematic production. The costume designer works alongside the director, script writer, cinematographer, art director, makeup artist, hair stylist and actors, as needed, to create a look that transforms the actor into the character. The Costume Designer helps place, define and enhance the character's time/era, region/country, social standing/affluence or lack there of, behavioural patterns/quirks, and emotional state through Costumes, and communicates the same to audience through colours, patterns and textures while ensuring clothing safety.

It's not always about merely beautifying a person but it's more about communicating the character to the audience, and generating a visual interest within the boundaries of the director's vision. Costume includes both clothing and accessories and the look is unfinished without make-up and hairstyle.

The designer is expected to possess strong artistic capabilities and a thorough knowledge of designing, styling, pattern development, draping, drafting, textiles, garment construction, body types, colour theories, lighting perceptions and fashion communication along with fashion history.
