Who is YouTuber Bernadette Banner?
Bernadette Banner was born in New York City, USA, on 11 March 1994 – her zodiac sign is Pisces, and she holds American nationality. She’s a YouTuber and a social media star, who’s perhaps known best for her eponymous YouTube channel, which she launched on 26 November 2012. It’s today subscribed to by more than 1.1 million people, and numbers over 75 million views of all her videos combined; she’s mostly focused on uploading videos which feature her creating and wearing the kind of clothes which were worn centuries ago.
Early life and education
Bernadette was raised in New York by her parents Oscar Alfredo Serrano and Diana Gabriela Itria, about whom nothing’s known, as she respects their privacy.
Because Bernadette hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, it’s widely believed that she’s an only child.
She attended a local high school, and it was during her four years there that she became interested in clothes. Bernadette watched movies nearly every day, and enjoyed seeing those worn in the Victorian era, and during the two World Wars. She came to the conclusion that the today’s fashion industry is fast, and lacks quality.
Upon matriculating in 2012, Bernadette enrolled at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, from which she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in design and production in 2016; she also practiced her skills at the School of Historical Dress in London, England.

Work in the film industry
In 2014, Bernadette created the costumes for the short musical comedy movie “Russian Broadway Shut Down”, which she also appeared in, portraying Putin’s Sweetheart’s Sweetheart. The movie was written and directed by John Walton West, also starred Eric Anderson and Annaleigh Ashford, and follows the time when the Russian government banned theatre plays, and how the Russian Broadway community responded to this.
Also in 2014, Bernadette designed the costumes featured in the short musical comedy film “Frozen on Broadway: First Look”, written and directed by John Walton West, and which starred Bill Irwin, Lisa Lampanelli and John Bolton. The film shows the first time “Frozen” was performed on Broadway, a play based on the eponymous 2013 animated movie.
Love life and relationships
Bernadette prefers not to share the details of her love life with the public, maintaining separate her professional and personal lives. This is perhaps why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her current relationship status, and her sexual orientation.
A number of her fans believe that she’s today romantically linked to a woman, and one has even claimed to have seen her kissing the woman in the streets of London. It’s said that Bernadette’s hiding the details concerning her sexual orientation, because of how this might affect her career, however, no evidence has been provided to support any of these claims, nor has Bernadette commented on these.
There are also those who believe that she’s today in a relationship with a British man, but that she prefers to keep him away from the media’s attention; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of August 2021, Bernadette appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Bernadette likes to travel, and her career has taken her to various US states, and European and Asian countries, as it’s important for her career to learn about the history of clothes on various continents. Her dream travel destination is Belgium.

She’s a huge lover of animals, with dogs and beavers being her favorites.
