Costume designer Mayes Rubio has an Academy Award nomination for her work on “JoJo Rabbit,” which has already won her the prize for Excellence in Period Film from the Costume Designers Guild. It’s quite an accomplishment for the Mexican immigrant who came to L.A. at the age of 20 and studied at L.A. Trade Tech College. The Frame contributor Andrea Gutierrez spent time with Rubeo at one of the designer’s favorite costume houses in Los Angeles.
