Founder & Creative Director
Eric Winterling, Inc. is one of New York City’s premier custom costume studios. Working together with costume designers, we transform their visions into one-of-a-kind costumes for stage and screen.
Woven into our devotion to the global entertainment industry is our reputation for flawless execution and master craftsmanship. From the turn of a collar to the shape of a bead, we’re known for our extensive knowledge of period detail, fabrics, cuts and colors, and an unwavering adherence to authenticity and accuracy.
Under the guidance of Eric Winterling, our full-service studio offers a comprehensive solution for bringing designs to life, with in-house costume and dressmaking, custom beading and embroidery, fabric dyeing, costume aging, and tailoring. We also provide comprehensive global sourcing and buying for fabrics and notions. Fittings can take place in-house at our 8,200 square-foot studio or onsite at the location of your choosing.
With one of the largest studios in Manhattan, we also provide rental space and an inspiring home base for production operations.

From the playhouse to the sound stage, we've created costumes across entertainment and commercial media for more than 30 years. Whatever the scope of your project, we’re committed to delivering superior quality that meets your timeline and budget.
Eric Winterling is at the heart of our creative process, crafting the patterns that become the finished pieces. Eric then directs our teams of master drapers, dressmakers and stitchers who construct each costume by hand, with an unwavering attention to detail and quality.
Eric Winterling took up sewing as a young boy – and never put it down. For more than 30 years, he's been dedicated to creating costumes that tell the stories of our times – past, present and imagined.
As artists, we use our craft to give back. Each year, we design and create costumes for Dancers Responding to AIDS (a program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS), the dance community’s first ongoing effort to support people across the U.S. living with HIV/AIDS.
We can't wait to help you tell your story. Contact us to discuss the costume needs of your next production. Please call the studio at (212) 629-7686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
