Clothing and fashion have been an obsession for costume designer Tiger Curran ever since her childhood. The daughter of two professional theatre actors, Tiger would often end up backstage in the tailor shop, fascinated by clothing from different eras.
Tiger graduated from UCLA and studied fashion illustration abroad in Paris. While still a student, she began working in the costume department of AMC’s Mad Men. Working closely with Emmy Award winning designer Janie Bryant, she mastered the nuances of accurate period costumes that integrate with story and set design, and creating an iconic character through clothing.
Since then, Tiger has worked as a costume designer and assistant costume designer on a wide variety of projects, continuing to explore new facets of costume design -- most recently HBO’s western Deadwood, Amazon’s The Romanoffs, 1930s old Hollywood glamour on “The Last Tycoon,” trendsetting on “Pretty Little Liars,” how to wow an audience on “The Voice,” and colonial era costumes and supernatural demons on “Sleepy Hollow.”
As a costume designer, Tiger is passionate, detail oriented, and collaborative. She is inspired to give each character originality and a life of their own, helping bring directors, writers, and producers’ character ideas to life on the screen.
