Virginia B. Johnson is a Filipina-American who began her costume career in the theatre designing for the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Jean Cocteau Repertory Theatre after completing her MFA. She worked for many years as a costume supervisor with renowned designers such as April Ferry and Michael Wilkinson.
After Peter Berg hired Virginia to design the feature film, Patriot's Day in 2016, she decided to focus exclusively on designing. She recently wrapped production on her third collaboration with Peter, Wonderland.
When not designing costumes, Virginia explores the intersection of feminism and craft. Virginia opened a fabric and fibers studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2011 where people can learn to sew, knit, crochet, embroider, and quilt.
Virginia is represented by Sandra Marsh and Associates.
