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 and Boris 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 Alexandra.
