Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1187: I'd like to work on movies as a costume designer & don't know how to start.

The first place to start is at the union. IATSE Local 892 www.costumedesignersguild.com/ (Or Local 891 in Canada, with all of my new Canadian friends, I'm not sure where you're writing from) You can call and ask a member services representative any questions you can't find answers for on their site.

The second thing I would suggest is to order their magazine.

These two resources should give you a good amount of information to start. Eventually, I would have you pursue mentors, but for now get yourself a strong enough base of knowledge to show any mentor you should choose to pursue, that you're serious and have done some homework.
