 Costumer of Motion Pictures, Television and Video

Loretta Harper, expert Designer, Set Costumer and Stylist, has enjoyed over 26 years experience in Feature Films, Television, Music Videos and Commercial Productions.

Daughter of world renowned Elvis Artist, Betty Harper, Loretta followed in her mother’s footsteps. Her mother’s love for art and music permeated every aspect of Loretta’s life, fostering a passion for bringing beautiful images to life.

At a young age, Loretta would make clothes by ripping apart vintage pieces she would find at Thrift Stores, bringing images, fabric and her style to life. She loved being different. She would create and wear things no one else ever had. She had a love for design and vintage fashion, with an eye well trained for creative images from the things her mother exposed her to.

In addition to designing and sewing clothes, Loretta also had a love for music and dance. At age 18, Loretta left Nashville to become a professional dancer. She managed go-go dancers, choreography and clothing design. During this time, Loretta was hired to make 50 period correct costumes for a music video, which landed her a job as a full-time assistant in the film industry. Her first 10 years of experience was spent being a set costumer and building costumes for music videos and TV commercials. The last 15 years of her career was focused entirely on movies. When Loretta is not on a feature film, she designs and makes one of a kind custom clothing for her private clientele.

Loretta has had the opportunity to work with many famous people, including: Elliott Gould, Ann-Margret, Nicole Kidman, Ashley Judd, Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, William Hurt, Brad Pitt, Charles Barkley, and hundreds more.

With clients spanning from Warner Brothers to Paramount Productions, Jack White, Third Man Records to Bill Young Productions and with recent work on the CMA Music Awards.

Loretta returned to Nashville to be closer to her beloved Mom. Since then,  Loretta has spent the majority of her time designing, creating and styling for feature films and music videos. Loretta’s love for executing one-of-a-kind costumes for movies, shows and stars we have come to know and love.

“I believe in finding and expressing one’s own INDIVIDUAL STYLE.” – Loretta Harper
