Collections Focus: Fashion and Costume on Screen
Celebrate the art of costume design in this month’s Collections Focus.
"From an early age I loved clothes, but I didn’t want to be a fashion designer because that is just about clothes."
"What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not."
To complement this month’s library talk, we’ve drawn together a selection of materials about the art of costume design and its integral role in the creation of character and story – no need to dress to impress, simply stop by and have a browse!
