Costume designers need at least a high school education. It is
helpful to take classes in art, family and consumer science, and
theater and to participate in drama clubs or community theater.
English, literature, and history classes will help you learn how to
analyze a play and research the clothing and manner of various
historical periods. Marketing and business-related classes will
also be helpful, as most costume designers work as freelancers.
Familiarity with computers is useful, as many designers work with
computer-aided design (CAD) programs.
