Hannah Jacobs was born to be a designer. While spending her childhood in Los Angeles visiting her Production Designer father on the sets he designed, she was quickly touched by the magic of storytelling and gained an understanding of what goes on behind the scenes.
As a student at The Marlborough School, fate presented Hannah the opportunity to shadow Academy Award winning Costume Designer, Deborah Scott, on the annual take your daughter to work day. Hannah proceeded to design every school play under the guidance of Ms. Scott from the age of 13 on. With a budding love of fashion and clothing mixed along with the backbone of detailed storytelling, Costume design quickly took hold of her and there has been no turning back.
Hannah attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA to receive classic theatrical training in the art of Costume Design. After her sophomore year, she had the privilege of retuning home for the summer to be the costume intern to designer Janie Bryant on HBO’s Deadwood. This unbelievable experience further solidified to Hannah that this was exactly what she wanted to do. With a BFA in Costume Design, Hannah returned home to gain practical experience in her chosen field. Under the tutelage of many acclaimed designers and mentors including Eduardo Castro, Hope Hanafin, and Danny Glicker, she has solidified her skill set and made a name for herself along the way.
Now after years of being a supporting entity, Hannah has stepped out into the limelight to embrace the role she’s dreamed of since a young girl as a Costume Designer.
She is a proud member of both Costume Designer’s Guild 892 and IATSE Costumer Union 705.
