Amy Andrews Harrell (Bachelor of Creative Arts, 1985) has served as costume designer, costume supervisor, wardrobe supervisor, or key costumer for some 50 film and television productions. John Travolta, Meryl Streep, Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Jane Fonda, Mel Gibson, Sam Shepard, Nicole Kidman, John Turturro, and Daniel Radcliffe are among the many famous people she has dressed.
In 2008 Amy won an Emmy Award, with costume designer Donna Zakowska, as costume supervisor for the HBO miniseries John Adams. She began costume designing about six years ago and has created work that reflects many styles, places, and time periods. She excels, however, in the 19th-century. In 2013 she was nominated for an Emmy for her costume designs for the National Geographic Channel docudrama, Killing Lincoln.
More recently, her designs for the PBS Civil War series, Mercy Street, were included in the 10th Annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Museum and Library.
Amy’s most recent project takes her to the 1980s, dressing Alec Baldwin as the famous automaker John DeLorean for a film that releases in 2018.
