Janie Bryant          

Costume Designer Known for "Mad Men" & "Deadwood"

Fashion and design have always been an obsession for Emmy® Award Winning costume designer Janie Bryant. Raised in Cleveland, Tennessee, Bryant was fascinated by colors and textures, and began designing at a very early age. Bryant also became an avid classic movie fan and watched classics like "The Sound of Music," "Guys and Dolls," "Gone with the Wind," "Gigi," "My Fair Lady," and "An American in Paris," and it would be these iconic films that would serve as future inspiration.

Bryant received critical attention for her work on HBO’s "Deadwood," and numerous prestigious nominations and awards including several nominations for "Outstanding Costume Design for Television Series–Period/Fantasy," and for Emmy® awards in 2004, 2005, and 2007 for "Outstanding Costumes for a Series," taking home the coveted award in 2005.

"Mad Men" started a new chapter in Bryant's career. She has received international praise for her work on the series and catwalk collections have been inspired by the looks on the show. Bryant received four nominations for a primetime Emmy® for her work on “Mad Men” (including in 2014) and has won two Costume Designers Guild awards for “Outstanding Costume Design for a Television Series – Period/Fantasy,” and was nominated again for another Guild award in 2014 and 2015.

Bryant has worked on numerous projects with brands and retailers including Maidenform, Hearts on Fire, SONY, Banana Republic, Downy Wrinkle Releaser and many more. In October 2010, she released her book “The Fashion File” and is currently in development of a TV reality design competition show. Janie has launched a shoe capsule with shoesofprey.com and recently announced a dress collaboration with Black Halo for fall 2015. Janie is also working as a brand ambassador for Hartmann luggage and Mack Weldon mens underwear and socks and is exploring licenses and collaborations in shape wear, jewelry, shoes, bridal and other categories.
