She has done a lot of costume designs for many popular films, the way that Judianna got into costume design was she went to university, graduated school and did the Yale Drama School thing and all of that.

One of her teachers from Yale, who’s an English Designer who lives in New York and from there she was lucky enough to be introduced to Milena Canonero, a costume designer for films. Judianna was then Milena’s assistant designer on The Cotton Club, she never did wardrobe, she was always assistant designer.

Pretty much straight after ‘The Cotton Club,’ Judianna did ‘Big’ and ‘Gardens of Stone’ but she still went back and worked with Milena on several projects. Judianna became her associate designer because she had to leave early. She worked her way up from being assistant designer to associate designer to co-designer and then she was the designer and Milena was the consultant.
