Design for Stage + Screen Costume Design
What will I do?
- Learn how clothes help create character and characterisation, whether for stage or screen.
- Learn how to work as part of a creative team – this may include a costume supervisor, makers and tailors and wardrobe assistants – backstage or stand by on set. A costume designer designer works initially with the director and creative team to establish the visual style of the costumes.
- Gain the skills necessary to recreate historical characters and periods, or to invent a completely imagined world.
