Anne-Aurelie Pillet (call her Lili) is a NYC based costume designer.

Born in a small town in Burgundy, she had an urge to explore the world.
After her Masters she moved to LA and stepped into the industry as a costume PA, driving all around the city to find the perfect beige top. After dragging her American fiancé to Europe, she established herself as a costume supervisor on a Bollywood blockbuster (Befikre starring Ranveer Singh) directed by Aditya Chopra but shot entirely in Paris.

In 2016 she designed her first action TV show The Way directed by Camille Delamarre (The Transporter) for Canal+ while also working on all kinds of indie short films. She brought to life flying ninjas while keeping her feet grounded.

In 2017 she moved to London and worked on commercials for clients such as Lenovo, Maybelline and Panasonic while collaborating on various short & feature films Hip Hop Cafe starring Osy Ikhile (Black Mirror) (BFI 2017), The Sea starring Anna Friel (Marcella) (MANIFF 2019) and Benjamin starring Colin Morgan (Merlin) (BFI 2018).

In 2018 she became a legal Alien and stepped into the NYC indie film world with T11 Incomplete starring Kristen Renton (Sons of Anarchy). She also came back to the stage, working regularly as a shopper at the Metropolitan Opera and as Kaye Voyce’s associate on Sea Wall/A Life starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge at The Public Theater.

“I've worked with Lili on a range of projects and can guaranty that she is a save pair of hands! She has an impeccable sense of style and great flexibility on fast turn around jobs."

 

"Lili was a great attentive costume designer on my short film Hip Hop Cafe. She’s creative, diligent and with a great eye and attention to detail. I would be very happy to work with her again and highly recommend her."

 

“Anne-Aurélie's creativity as a designer and a stylist is unmatched. Her ability to see color patterns and tell stories through style provides a necessary aspect to any project that must not be overlooked by Directors and Producers in the industry. She is also a tremendous collaborator allowing her to meld her creative genius well with other creatives of other disciplines."
