Costume Designer
Lisy Christl

Lisy Christl began her career in Berlin, after graduating in Fashion from the Munich Masterclass.

The first Feature Film Lisy designed was ‘The Castle’ directed by Michael Haneke, with whom she has since collaborated on many occasions; titles such as ‘Cache’ (Hidden’), ‘Time of The Wolf’ and ‘Funny Games’.

In 2003, Lisy was nominated for a LOLA (German Film Award) for her Costume Design on ‘Shadows of Time’ directed by Florian Gallenberger.

Lisy won the LOLA for best Costume Design in 2009 for her work on the historical feature film ‘City of War: John Rabe’, which was also directed by Florian Gallenberger.

‘Anonymous’ in 2011 is the first film that Lisy designed for Roland Emmerich. The film is costume rich and gained her both an Oscar nomination and another LOLA win. Lisy’s work on the film included designing costumes for both Vanessa Redgrave and Joely Richardson who played Queen Elizabeth 1, also Rhys Ifans as De Vere.

Lisy’s exquisite work on ‘Anonymous’ has been widely acclaimed and was featured in an exhibition at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.

‘White House Down’ was Lisy’s second collaboration with Roland Emmerich which marked the first time her work had taken her to Canada on a studio blockbuster. In 2016 Lisy went on then to design the costumes on ‘Impendence Day: Resurgence’ allowing her to collaborate with Roland once more.

‘Radegund’, which is currently in post-production, directed by Terrence Mallick is her most recent feature film. This project explored the life of Franz Jägerstätter, the infamous objector who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II.

Lisy’s most recent Television work includes the Sci-Fi Thriller series ‘Counterpart’ for the premium cable network Starz.

Lisy lives in Berlin.
