David Anthony Crowley is a New York City based costume designer and stylist. Having originally studied film, he has a solid comprehension of the importance of working with colors and establishing strong visuals in order to convey emotion and enhance a storyline’s progression. It was during his initial year of film school when he realized that for as long as the audience was asked to watch an actor they were also asked to pay attention to what he or she was wearing. From there, Crowley quickly noticed the influence a costume can have on an audience and how important a wardrobe can be to a character's emotional progression. Clothes and costumes soon became a very important visual within his films and within his life.
