Sean DeFreitas

owner, Designs by Sean Inc.

Sean DeFreitas’s passion for his work started at the age of nine in his home country of Trinidad and Tobago. After moving to Florida, Sean began working in the event industry in 1987 and realized his passion for costume design could bring a fresh approach to events. Sean, whose work has taken him across the United States and around the globe, has built Designs by Sean into a multi-talented design house capable of producing every element of a show. His daring and creative rendering of color and lighting and his use and placement of luxurious fabric textures create thematic, mood-altering environments.
