Vassilia Rozana grew up in Levadia before moving to Athens, where she works and lives. She studied in the Department of Economics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, but her artistic nature soon led elsewhere. She graduated instead from the Fashion Design Department of the Public Institute of Athens, and since 2004, she has worked continuously as a costume designer for both cinema and theater, working with prestigious organizations such as the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, the Athens Concert Hall (Megaron), and the Athens Olympic Games.
In theater she has collaborated several times with prestigious director/choreographer Dimitri Papaioannou, including “Medea2,”, “Still Life,” and the opening ceremony of the Baku 2015 European Games. She has also been working with the Blitz theater group (“Late night,” “Vania, 6 a.m.” and “How to Disappear Completely”).
In cinema, she has partnered with award-winning director Athina Rachel Tsangari on all three of her Greek productions: “Attenberg,” “The Capsule,” and “Chevalier.” She also worked with the Oscar-nominated directors Richard Linklater, on his Greece-set “Before Midnight,” and Yorgos Lanthimos for his third film “Alps.”
In 2017 she was a jury member for the European Film Awards.
