Costume Designer

Kristin Seth cut her teeth working costume on short films and television series, before taking on the role of costume designer on some of New Zealand's biggest films of the 2010s. Since her award-nominated work on The Dark Horse in 2014, Seth has led the costume team on such features as smash-hit Hunt for the Wilderpeople, action flick Shadow in the Cloud and historical biopic Whina. She has also worked on a number of advertising campaigns for brands like Genesis and Spark, often through production company The Sweetshop. Kristin Seth lives in Auckland, where she co-owns vintage store The Fabulist with her husband.
