Malgosia Turzanska was born and raised in Krakow, Poland. She has a BFA in Costume Design from DAMU in Prague, Czech Republic and an MFA in Costume Design from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
She began in film as personal assistant to the Polish director Agnieszka Holland and swiftly realized that, while pretty bad at getting coffee, she was rather good at dealing with costumes. Since then, Malgosia has been designing for film, dance and theater. She has recently designed costumes for David Mackenzie's "Hell or High Water" with Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster and for Rebecca Miller's screwball comedy "Maggie's Plan" with Greta Gerwig, Julianne Moore and Ethan Hawke. She's also collaborated with Ti West on the upcoming western "In A Valley Of Violence" starring Ethan Hawke and John Travolta and worked with David Lowery on the Sundance favorite "Ain’t Them Bodies Saints" with Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster.
Malgosia lives in Brooklyn and avidly collects unusual pins and brooches.
