A Conversation with Emmy Award-Nominated Costume Designer, Justine Seymour
February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Costume designer Justine Seymour’s work can be seen in Netflix’s hit German-American drama miniseries Unorthodox — currently streaming on the platform — for which she was nominated for an Emmy and won the German TV Award for Best Costume Designer 2020. She is widely admired for her ability to authentically build character through costume.
Seymour is currently in pre-production on the Apple TV Plus adaptation of The Mosquito Coast with director Rupert Wyatt, starring Gabriel Bateman, Melissa George, and Justin Theroux.
In Australia, Seymour started out as a member of the art department on major films including; Mission Impossible II, Moulin Rouge, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and Son of the Mask. After she moved to Hollywood, she worked on independent film projects: The Sessions with Helen Hunt, John Hawkes and William H Macy; Backtrack starring Adrien Brody; All Nighter with J.K. Simmons and Emile Hirsch; and Destination Wedding starring Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves.
Seymour also designed episodic television shows for various networks including Netflix’s Messiah and Medal of Honor and Amazon Studios One Mississippi.
In her early years, Seymour attended Michael Hall School, a Waldorf school focusing on the arts and language. At 16 years old she began her first career as a model. From there she collaborated with musicians on costumes for their stage performances, which led to more performance art costumes for artists, plays, and television commercials throughout the 1980 and early 1990s in London.
Seymour earned her Master’s Degree in Design at the Australian Film, Television, and Radio School (AFTRS). Born in the United Kingdom, she is now based in Los Angeles and is represented in the United States by Agency for the Performing Arts (APA).
