John Mollo (born 18 March 1931 in London, England) is a British costume designer and book author, most known for his Oscar-winning costume design for the Star Wars film series. He is the older brother of Andrew Mollo.


John Mollo has been interested in European and American military uniforms since a very young age and wrote several books on the subject.[1] This led him to costume design, first being an advisor for the movie Charge of the Light Brigade in 1966 and later a costume designer, his first film being George Lucas' Star Wars in 1977.[2] Mollo has also been a military advisor on the films Zulu Dawn, Barry Lyndon and Nicholas and Alexandria.
