Constanza Romero (born March 8, 1958)[1] is an American artist and theater designer.

Romero's parents divorced in 1969. Her mother found a teaching job in Fresno, California, and moved there with Romero and her younger sister and two younger brothers. In 1972 her mother died of breast cancer, and the four children went to live with a maternal aunt and uncle near Fresno. Romero met playwright August Wilson in 1990 when her Yale School of Drama teachers assigned her to design costumes for his play, The Piano Lesson. The couple married in 1994, and had one child. Wilson died in October 2005.[2]

Romero has twice been nominated for a Tony Award for Best Costume Design of a Play (in 2005 and 2010, respectively).[3]
