Spencer Williams

Creative Director – Founder

In 2019, Spencer realized his love for fashion was not entirely found on a runway but stemmed through film and television. He decided to share his passion for costume design internationally and launched The Art of Costume. Today, Spencer happily serves as lead editor, highlighting costume designers and their brilliant work. This eventually paved the way for Spencer to get together with Elizabeth, one of his long-time best friends, and launch The Art of Costume Blogcast. When Spencer isn’t talking about costumes, he spends most of his free time watching The Lord of The Rings, playing video games, sharing MCU theories, and drinking a heavily iced cherry-coke.
