“In preschool, I borrowed a pair of my mom’s knee-highs and wore them to school. By the end of the week, all the other girls were wearing their mother’s knee-highs. In high school I proudly wore combat boots with my cheerleading uniform. In college, while all the other girls shopped the malls, I shopped the fabric and thrift stores so I could make one-of-a-kind clothes for myself. When I discovered that my love for creative design and clothing could be incorporated into a career, my life changed.”
-Kathryn “Kat” Orindgreff
This life change brought Kathryn Langston Orindgreff to Los Angeles to pursue a career in costume design for film and television. Kat started her career as a member of Motion Picture Costumers 705.

In 2007, Kat joined Costume Designers Guild 892 and started her career as a Costume Designer for film and television. Since then, she has designed all genres of film and television. Kat Orindgreff designed all 100 episodes of FREEFORM’s hit multi-camera comedy “Baby Daddy”.
