Maja Meschede

Costume Designer

Maja’s trajectory through the ranks of the costume department has been pretty remarkable. In ten short years, she’s chiefed or co-chiefed half a dozen features, and has been assistant designer on such $100m+ blockbusters as ‘Now You See Me 2’, ‘The Legend of Tarzan’, and ‘Maleficent’. She has designed Hadi Hajaig’s last three films, including the much acclaimed ‘Cleanskin’ and the upcoming ‘Blue Iguana’ starring Sam Rockwell. Based in London, Maja is available for work worldwide.

“Working with Maja has been a rewarding experience. She has delivered iconic designs and striking costumes whilst dealing with a hugely compressed schedule and limited budget. Throughout the process she has been a delight. I can’t wait to work with her in future – if she is ever available again after Black Mirror comes out.”

Toby Haynes – Director on ‘Black Mirror 4’
