Elizabeth Whiting

Costume Designer

Elizabeth Whiting is one of NZ’s best-known costume designers, with over 20 years experience in the industry.

“People often do not notice costumes at a conscious level. Instead costumes create a subconscious perception of the characters personality, status, hopes, dreams and aspirations.  My aim as a costume designer is to provide a platform supporting the actor’s interpretation of his character.”

Elizabeth Whiting has worked with Theatre Corporate, Mercury Theatre, Auckland Theatre Company, Royal NZ Ballet, Human garden, Douglas Wright, Auckland Ballet and others.

Her most recent design, work has been with ATC on Cabaret, Into the Woods and The Blue Room. Future work includes Hair (ATC) and Falstaff (NZ Opera).
