Kym Barrett, who has created some of the most influential clothing seen in recent years. She went on to attend the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney, where her association with Baz Luhrmann led her to the United States and Mexico to work on his 1996 film Romeo + Juliet. The costumes she created for Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in that film attracted a great deal of attention and led to her meeting the Wachowski brothers, who hired her in 1999 to design the costumes for The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions – costumes that inspired fashion designers, other costume designers and consumers around the world. For her work on screen, Kym was nominated in 2001 by the Costume Designers Guild of America's Best Costume Award for The Matrix, and won the guild’s award for Best Commercial Costume Design in 2002. The same year she was nominated for a best costume design Golden Satellite Award for her work on From Hell and in 2007 she was nominated for excellence in costume design for the fantasy film Eragon. Ms. Barrett recently recently re-teamed with Andy Wachowski on Cloud Atlas and her work can be seen in the upcoming The Amazing Spiderman. Credits: The Green Hornet, Hell, Three Kings, Gothika, Speed Racer and dozens of others.You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com Link: www.123FilmEasy.com. Follow us on Twitter @123Film
