Los Angeles is the perfect place to learn how to become a costume designer for film or TV. With instructors from the industry, visits to movie sets, TV studios, and major costume houses, and guest speakers like designers Janie Bryant (Mad Men) and Mona May (Clueless), our costume design degree is a career kickstarter. Students leave the program with a professional portfolio and experience collaborating with American Film Institute student directors.
The Advanced Study Degree program allows students who have already completed a Fashion Design Degree at FIDM to learn this specialized craft.
The Advanced Study Program in Film & TV Costume Design provides a comprehensive view of a field with its own distinct tradition and creative challenges. It offers students a chance to explore those qualities that make film and television an exceptional choice for the designer. The development of a broad frame of cinematic reference, the interaction with working professionals, and the opportunity to make practical and creative decisions within the time frame of a production, will provide the student with the knowledge and skill necessary to launch a career in the global entertainment field.
