Erika Munro is a costume designer, illustrator, and artist living in New York.
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Children's Book Illustration, Erika lived in France for several years before moving to Los Angeles. While in LA, Erika combined her love of vintage clothing and drawing, which led her first to textile design, then to costume illustration, and ultimately to costume design.
Erika has worked for and learned from some incredible artists, including as Oscar-nominated Costume Designer Danny Glicker and Oscar-winning Costume Designer Colleen Atwood.
Since moving to New York in 2004, Erika has designed costumes for more than 12 films, 2 plays, and numerous commercials and music videos. Among the many actors she has worked with are Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Eddie Redmayne, Christopher Eigeman, Timothy Hutton, Rory Culkin, Emma Roberts, Blake Lively, and Chloe Moretz, to name but a few.
As a costume designer, Erika uses her training in illustration, visual storytelling, textiles, and historical garment construction. When not on a film set, she can be found expanding her collection of vintage clothing, baking beautiful and delicious sugary confections, or drawing and sewing in front of a movie from the 1940's, all while sporting red lipstick.
