Laura Wong is a Los Angeles based costume designer working in theater, film, and television. She is a graduate of UCLA with an MFA in Costume Design and loves the process of telling compelling stories and creating characters through costume.
She is particularly passionate about the study of non-Western dress, and loves working on projects that give voice to the underrepresented. Laura specializes in Japanese costume and textiles and has studied the subject extensively in Japan and in the United States. Past research topics have included Tokyo street fashion tribes, textile traditions of Japanese minority populations in Okinawa and Hokkaido, and the role of the kimono in contemporary society. She is currently working towards a certification in kimono dressing from the Southern California branch of the Yamano School, based in Tokyo.
