With a nomination for Best Costume Design (for action pic ‘Goemon’) at the 2010 Asian Film Awards in Hong Kong, Tina’s rise in the world of film costume design has been almost meteoric. She’s since designed the forthcoming Clive Owen-Morgan Freeman pic ‘The Last Knights’ due for release in 2014.
Tina’s couture background got her into the film industry creating patterns, toiles and prototypes for Sandy Powell for ‘Gangs of New York’ (2002 Martin Scorsese) and she designed and made a series of couture gowns for Lindy Hemming for ‘Die Another Day’ (2002 Lee Tamahori). She also worked on Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Australia’ and in between film work Tina spent a number of years working for famed designer Alexander McQueen.
With hands-on skills in pattern cutting and design, along with her experience in fashion editorial and catwalk , Tina’s Costume Design has great depth which is fuelled by her enthusiastic spirit.
