German costume designer for Berlin stage productions who supplied costumes to the Apollo-Theater, Metropol-Theater and Passage-Theater, as well as ballets and the Royal Opera. Along with Charlotte Josephsen and Regina May, he was one of the three best-known Berlin costume designers of haute couture.

From 1910 Budzinski's first designs as a freelancer were created for Bruno Pruschinski, whose company he took over in 1912. In 1930, the "luxury workshops Pruschinski" went bankrupt in the wake of the Great Depression. William Budzinski then sold his collection of 3,000 costumes to the Berlin Museum of Arts and Crafts.

William Budzinski died on 4 October 1950 in Berlin-Buch, aged 75.
