About This Blog

Welcome to Gowns By…, a blog filled with musings on costume design, past and present.  As a costume designer, I’m always looking at movies and television shows with an eye toward style.  I tend to notice everything from detailed historical accuracy (or lack thereof) to the creative use of color, or simply a great pair of shoes.  I grew up watching classic films, so I have a deep appreciation for the work of legendary designers like Adrian and Edith Head.  But I also love watching what current designers do.  I hope you enjoy my observations on some of my favorite films and trends.  Please come back often!


Brianne has designed the costumes for over 50 theatrical productions, four short films, and a television pilot.  She was also the resident costume designer for the Los Angeles-based Meh-Tropolis Dance Theatre from its founding in 2002 until 2008.  Brianne graduated with a B.A. in Theatre Arts and a minor in History from Loyola Marymount University.

  1. Very interesting information!Perfect just what I was searching for!

  2. I majored in Theatre in college and grad school, and spent more “all-nighters” in the costume shop than I care to remember. My friend told me about this great site, and she was right! I’m bookmarking it, ASAP.
