Jen Martín

(Costume Designer) 

 

Jen Martín was born and raised in Southeast Los Angeles. At the age of 12, while watching the technicolor classic Auntie Mame (1958), Jen realized her love of costume and the stories clothes are capable of telling on screen. Throughout her life, curiosity has lead to immersion in music subcultures, art, Almodovar films, and traveled to Europe, Asia, and extensively throughout Latin America. All of these experiences have fed Jen’s creativity and helped cultivate her unique worldview and eclectic style.

While studying sewing and garment construction in college, Jen successfully began her own online vintage clothing shop. She has shared her ability to date any garment at a glance by costuming for period films including Carol, Dunkirk, Vice and Green Book. Some of Jen’s contemporary design projects include those for Netflix, HBO, BET, Dazed Digital and Nowness, with several going on to showcase at Cannes and Sundance Film Festival.
