Born in Tehran, Iran Negar Nemati always knew she was destined to be an extravagant Costume Designer.
From the early ages, she started her path to be one of the most creative artists, by studying Theatre in Tehran University of Fine Arts. In the later years, she continued nourishing her intuition with her skills and experiences being developed under the supervision of Iranian Theatre Maestros.  Such guidance and professionalism has made it possible for her to have a very unique perspective, which can be seen in the approach she takes in her work. She is able to generate creative ideas that convey the exact message.
Negar knows the real ropes of fashion and the movie industry, and is one of the top amongst her peers.  Through years of in-depth understanding of both design & analyzing the text, has made it possible for her to design memorable characters in theatre & movies.

The debut movie "Modest Reception" reflects Negar’s hard work on researching and close collaboration with actors, directors & the team of filmmakers.  In the list of Negar’s accomplishments, she has been awarded for Best Costume Design in 2018 for the movie “Pig” in “The 20th Celebration of Iranian Cinema" & in 2016 for the movie "A Dragon Arrives" from Iranian film critics guild. Furthermore, she has been two-time nominee for Best Costume Design in prestigious Iranian Fajr Film Festival for movies "A Dragon Arrives" and "Negar".

Aside from theatre & movie work, Negar is always inspired to share her passion and originality with special individuals appearing on red carpets worldwide.

With international experiences, a strong background & eager for new challenges, Negar looks forward to her Canadian experience.
