Tiger Curran is a costume designer for film and television, recently Emmy-nominated for her work as assistant costume designer on Netflix’s "Hollywood."

 

Tiger grew up in Sarasota, Florida. The daughter of two professional theater 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.  At university she met close friend and collaborator, artist Lauren Berger, with whom she would create the rap group High Society with Yeti Beats (famed producer for Grammy nominated Doja Cat), and later co-found their activewear brand Laurel Canyon Tennis Club (www.laurelcanyontennisclub.com).

 

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 — superheroes on DC Comic’s “Shazam 2,” 1940’s glamor on Netflix's "Hollywood," HBO’s western "Deadwood," trendsetting on “Pretty Little Liars,” how to wow an audience on “The Voice,” and colonial era costumes and supernatural demons on “Sleepy Hollow.”

 

While continuing her career in costume design and fashion design, Tiger is devoted to expression in many forms including screenwriting, music, visual arts, and dance.
