about

Adriana Lámbarri is a Hispanic costume designer based out of Southern California, born and raised in San Diego. Her passion for thoughtful character development and storytelling lead her to costume design after working both domestically and internationally in the fashion industry for over 10 years. This has allowed her to bring a unique perspective to her designs which have been seen in a wide range of productions for film and theater throughout LA and Orange counties. She finds her ability to navigate between the two mediums deeply enriching and is always conscious by how both influence one another in her work. Her theater credits include work at South Coast Repertory, Ensemble Theatre Company, The Chance Theater, Center Theatre Group, The Los Angeles Theatre, La Mirada Theatre, Antaeus Theatre Company, Cincinnati Playhouse, and Pasadena Playhouse to name a few. She was thrilled to be honored with the 2023 OC Theatre Guild’s award for Outstanding Costume Design for her work in Molly Smith Metzler’s play Cry It Out, directed by Elina de Santos at The Chance Theater. Adriana has had the unique opportunity to design costumes for the NFL Hall of Fame’s immersive exhibit Game For Life, in Canton, Ohio which features a holographic Joe Namath. Additionally, she collaborates with other costume designers and has illustrated several projects for them which include work with Shanghai Disney, Norwegian and Carnival Cruise Lines, Marvel Studios, La Jolla Playhouse, The Guthrie Theater, Cleveland Opera and Utah Shakespeare Festival to name a few.

Adriana firmly believes the best outcomes are born out of meaningful scripts, excellent research, and a solid collaboration with talented, positive, open-minded team members. 

"For me, I get immense satisfaction digging into scripts, interpreting them into a sort of map of clothing, then helping create real, believable characters. They can be in all kinds of situations ranging from both ordinary or fantastical, or somewhere in between. It really doesn't matter so long as the story gets told in the best way possible. No detail is unimportant. This is what keeps inspiring me to find the answers. This is something I get to do".

When she isn't hunting down the perfect pair of obscure colored socks or poking around in dusty costume stocks, she can be found enjoying time with her family, keeping up with her ballet classes, and indulging in a gin and tonic. She is a proud member of United Scenic Artists Local 829.
