She began her career as a wardrobe assistant on the 1990 movie Megaville and afterward worked on the films Toys and Red Shoe Diaries. She worked as a creative costume designer on numerous films.

Tributes For Shawna Trpcic:
One of the followers of Shawna showed her feelings on the death news, and she also discussed a Bible verse.
I was wearing this Ahsoka inspired by Trpcic’s brilliant costume design when I learned she had passed. So tragic and unexpected. It’s painfully true what the Bible says in (James 4:14 that life is a vapor. It’s short, and there’s no way of knowing what will happen. While this truth is sad and scary, my morning devotions give me hope. I read (Psalm 23), “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” Despite this unfair, unpredictable world, I have hope and find peace in the pain, knowing that God is with me. I pray for that peace for Shawna’s family and friends.”
