Kim Wilcox has been designing costumes for award-winning television series and motion pictures since 1995.
Most recently Kim joined the creative team for Season 2 of Matt and Ross Duffer's 1980s horror/sci-fi sensation Stranger Things. Stay tuned to Netflix… things will get even creepier this Halloween!
She also helped create the world of Mr. Robot, a psychological cyber-thriller on USA. Critic Nate Scott said of the show: "Mr. Robot was not only the most ambitious show of 2015, it was also the most beautiful, the best written, and the most immediate, speaking in a real way to the world we live in." Starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater, the series won the 2016 Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Series as well as AFI, Critic's Choice, WGA, Gotham, and Peabody awards.
Previous designs for television include Season 2 of Denis Leary and Bob Fisher's hilarious comedy Sirens as well as costumes for Starz’ Golden Globe-nominated series Boss (starring Kelsey Grammer, Connie Nielsen, Sanaa Lathan, and Jonathan Groff).
Kim's work for independent film has been seen at the Sundance, Venice, Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals, and includes costumes for Barry Levinson’s darkly comic adaptation of Philip Roth's The Humbling starring Al Pacino and Greta Gerwig; early 1800s re-enactors for Justin Schwarz’s road comedy The Discoverers starring Griffin Dunne, Cara Buono and Melanie Martin; 1980s and contemporary fashions for the pageant comedy Ass Backwards featuring Jon Cryer, Vincent D'Onofrio and Alicia Silverstone; and designs capturing Silverlake and the NYC art world for Magnolia Pictures’ award-winning dramedy Nobody Walks, directed by Ry Russo-Young and co-written by Lena Dunham.
Born in the heartland and raised across the U.S., Kim studied theatre and anthropology at The College of William and Mary in Virginia, drawing at The Art Students League of New York, and earned an MFA in Costume Design from Brandeis University in Boston. After apprenticing on Broadway for two years, she joined IATSE USA Local 829, and worked for several years as an assistant costume designer on such diverse projects as Pollock, Brown Sugar, Adventureland, How to Make It In America, and Duplicity. For her work on HBO’s The Sopranos, she received two Emmy nominations.
Kim is a proud aunt and a traveler at heart, and is based out of Brooklyn, NY.
