"Costume design uses the language of fashion to create characters, and to place them with great precision and delicacy into the visual and emotional landscape, and the social context, of a specific time and place. Clothes express infinite shadings of personality, from the broadest strokes to the subtlest suggestion; they tell a story. A costume designer is a psychologist, a detective, a diplomat, a social historian, but above all an artist and a collaborator; an artist whose medium is fabric, movement, form, color, texture, light and shadow; and whose work, in concert with actors, directors, cinematographers and production designers, brings characters dramatically and cinematically to life in a tangible, recognizable celluloid world."


Soon after graduating from Fashion Design in 1987, David was recommended for a job as assistant costume designer on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. His unique and thoughtful approach to clothing has served him well a busy costume designer for such feature films as Hoffa, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Legends of the Fall, Titanic, Wild Wild West, and Minority Report.
