Mari van der Merwe

Mari has more than seven years’ experience in the film industry, in both South African and international productions. “Fiela se Kind” was her first production working as a wardrobe designer on a feature film.

“A costume designer gives texture to the storyworld through the clothing they give the characters to wear and it also helps with the characterisation. It could give you visual clues and a backstory about a character that may not be verbally told to the audience.”
