Inspired by feature films and animation, Diana De Mol has been making costumes since early childhood. She attended the Rietveld art college, specializing in fashion and theater design, with a minor in photography.
Soon after, she moved to Los Angeles to gain further experience in the film industry, interning at the special effects company ' The Creature Company' under Lino Stavole.
Diana continued to travel, and worked on various projects around the world. She worked as a trainee on the Victoria's Secret Fashion show, and was asked to return as an assistant the following years. During her time in New York, she also had the opportunity to work with different artists on international projects.
Diana traveled to New Zealand to design costumes for the short film ' The Light Harvester'. When she returned to Europe, her international network helped her settle in London, where she had the opportunity to work on various major feature films and TV-shows, such as Maleficent, Cinderella, Game of Thrones and many others.
Diana was approached to join a costume team under designer Nic Ede. She travelled to Malaysia to work on the British TV drama 'Indian Summers', as an on set costumer. The following year she worked with the same team on 'Close to the Enemy', based in the UK.
Currently she is sponsored by International Arts & Artists with a cultural exchange visa and works under Camilla Huey in the United States.
