Costume Designers

The U.S. Department of Labor categorizes the occupation of costume designer under the larger career field of fashion design. It predicts that employment of fashion designers who work in arts, entertainment, and recreation will grow by 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, or about as fast as the average for all careers. Job opportunities for those who work in the motion picture and video industries are expected to grow by 16 percent during this same time span, or much faster than the average for all careers. As more cable television networks and streaming services such as Netflix create original programming, demand for costume design in these areas is likely to increase.
