Austin Scarlett is a designer whose work spans the realms of theater, high fashion and television. His work has been described as "magic" (The New York Times), "worthy of a goddess" (Elle), "technically innovative and esthetically sublime" (Madam Figaro), and he, a "bright young thing" (Artforum).

Born in Cottage Grove, Oregon, as a teenager Austin moved to New York to pursue his education at The Fashion Institute of Technology. There he received his BA in fashion design. He also attended The Art Students League of New York. After graduating he continued his studies by working as an apprentice costume archivist at the Museum at FIT and their collection of historical costumes and Haute Couture.

Scarlett's experience as costume studio assistant has earned him the pleasure of working with designers such as Julie Taymor, Tony Walton, Martin Pakledinaz, William Ivey Long, Anne Roth, and Oscar de la Renta, among others.

In 2005 Austin made television and fashion history with the creation of his famous corn-husk dress, on the very first episode of the Emmy and Peabody award winning "Project Runway." He presented collections under his own name for New York's Fall 2005 and Spring 2006 seasons. Austin continued to develop his reputation for couture when he served as creative director of international bridal and evening collection Kenneth Pool, designing over six seasons of gowns from Spring 2006 to Spring 2009.

Recent works include costume design for David Parson's Dance "Remember Me," presented on PBS August 2009, "Trace" for the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, premiere February 2010, and the opera "El Cimarron" at the Greenwich Music Festival, June 2010.

Scarlett also enjoys sharing his design talents in support of the arts and charitable causes including The New York Public Library, Equity Fights AIDS, Live Out Loud, Women in Need, and City Opera.

Austin lives in New York City.
