Designer: Judith Armas Orellana
Title: Nephilim: Warrior Angel – Shadowhunters
Judith Armas Orellana is a costume designer born and raised in Lima-Peru and currently living in Los Angeles. Whether watching Disney with her mother or Steven Seagal with her father, films were her first love but Star Wars was always her favorite. She decided to go to college to learn more about the entertainment world but it wasn´t until her first internship that she found her one true love: costume design. And after working in several movies and commercials under the wing of a great costume designer who taught her how to be passionate for her work, she decided to extend her horizons and applied for a Theater Costume Design degree at FIDM for which she moved to LA. Her schooling had her specializing in period construction and costume design as well as for film and television.
She says that “Costume design is my life, as simple and complex as that.” Today she works as a freelance costume designer (costumes upon request) and a stock costumer at Eastern Costume (a period based rental warehouse for film and television).
