Jenny Beavan is an English costume designer. She has won two Academy Awards, most recently in 2016 for Costume Design in Mad Max: Fury Road, and has been nominated an additional eight times. Beavan also received a Tony Award nomination for Best Costume Design for the play Private Lives. She won the 2016 BAFTA for Costume Design. She was born in 1950 in London, England. Jenny Beavan is known for her work on Merchant Ivory films. In the 1970s, she worked on set design for London theatrical productions. She joined the field of film costume design after obtaining an unpaid position to design garments for a small Merchant Ivory film, Hullabaloo Over Georgie and Bonnie's Pictures. This began her long relationship with Merchant Ivory productions. She has frequently worked with costume designer John Bright, who runs the costume-rental house Cosprop, and credits him with educating her as she was starting out her career. She said she was helped by "just listening to him and learning from him, learning the history and the politics of clothing". Since then, the two have collaborated on more than ten films together and have shared six Academy Award nominations.
