Kate Hawley, costume designer

Kate Hawley’s feature film credits include Pacific Rim and The Hobbit, along with numerous other costume and set design credits ranging across film, television, theatre and opera in Europe, the US and Australasia.

During and after her diploma in visual communication design in 1992, Ms Hawley took any opportunity to help in local productions and in 1996, received a Television New Zealand Scholarship, and assistance from Wellington City Opera, to study at The Motley School of Theatre Design in London.

Since then, her career has taken off. Ms Hawley is currently filming in Toronto; a far cry from the advice of her high school career advisor who saw her most likely career as a mortician!
