Ishioka started her career as a graphic designer for ads, but soon moved to designing for film and theater. She won an Academy Award for costume design on Francis Ford Coppola’s version of DRACULA, a Grammy for her artwork on Miles Davis album TUTU, and two Tony Awards for both set and costume design work on our fellow Offender David Henry Hwang’s play M. BUTTERFLY. Other design credits include SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK on Broadway and Tarsem Singh’s film THE CELL. She also directed the music video for Bjork’s “Cocoon”.
She passed away in 2012 from cancer.
