Costume Designer and Celebrity Stylist, Dawn Ritz has become a worldwide name for her courageous styles and inspirational designs.
Some of her work includes Costume Designing the opening sequence for American Horror Story “Coven”, as well as contributing work for The X Factor, The Voice, and JJ Abram's, “Undercovers”.
Her love for film was never more evident with the brilliant costumes she designed for the soon to be cult classic, “The Devil’s Carnival”, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman. Her work was so influential that it lead to a cult following that soon inspired Cosplay’s across the nation.
Dawn’s next big endeavor came on the set of Lost In Austin, Directed by Will Raee, starring Linda Cardellini, Craig Robinson, Skeet Ulrich and Ursula Parker. This clever dark comedy was met with some real challenges when Dawn had to turn LA into Austin. Her ability to hit the fashion mark in every scene was nothing short of brilliant. Her versatility as a Stylist and Costume Designer helped bring the vision of Lost in Austin to life.
Dawn also recently completed a Short film contest for Break Media/ New Regency Films, 'The Liar's Chair', Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero.
Like many Artists, Dawn’s drive for artistic perfection is haunting and her consistency to build beautiful wardrobes with detailed designs is a testament to her creative genius.
