Salvador Perez        

Costume Designer on "The Mindy Project" & "Pitch Perfect 2," Fashionista, President of the Costume Designers Guild

Salvador Perez is an accomplished and versatile costume designer, working in many genres — from feature film and television movies, to television series. Born and raised in Central California, Perez moved to Los Angeles to attend The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), planning on a career in fashion design, but fate had another path for him. An accomplished stitcher, his talents were soon discovered by Costume Designers who took him away from the fashion industry. He first made costumes, then became a costume manufacturing foreman and assistant designer on films like “Titanic,” “The Flintstones,” and “Barb Wire.” With his vast knowledge of clothing construction and manufacturing, Perez was also sought out by the J. Peterman Catalogue to design and develop their Movie Legends Line.

Perez’s work is very diverse. He has designed for many TV series including "Castle", "Moonlight", "Veronica Mars" and 6 Seasons of "The Mindy Project", where he was nominated for an Emmy for costume design. Salvador has also worked on movies such as Pitch Perfect 1, 2 and 3, Think Like A Man 1 and 2, Men of Honor and Drumline.

In addition to costume design for 6 seasons for the style-setting and fashion-acclaimed show The Mindy Project, Perez has designed several custom looks for Mindy Kaling for her red carpet and other appearances. Perez’s approach is highly detailed and considers every aspect of a character’s personality while telling the story through costume. Knowing how clothes should fit and be made, he has a unique ability to fit and tailor clothes to make actors look their best. He brings his love for his art with him to every fitting, every shopping trip, and every day on set.

Perez’s passion for costume design and the Film & Television Industry was recognized by the members of the Costume Designers Guild, who elected him President of their organization. His work has been covered widely in the fashion and entertainment press including Instyle Magazine, E! News, Glamour, Fashionista, The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, OK, US Magazine, People and People Stylewatch.
