The conversation today between Jeremy and his father Tim Angel CBE, Chairman and CEO of Angels, is an eagerly anticipated contribution to our podcasts.
With Angels being, as many consider, the foremost supplier of costume throughout the world, they discuss how through Tim’s passion and business acumen, this position was achieved and how this will be maintained for future generations.
As most listeners will know, Angels is a vast and inspiring emporium of clothing, accessories and manufacturing. Its vast and comprehensive stock covers all points in history meaning that the costume designer’s unique and creative desires can be realised within a practical business setting.
Tim’s passion and determination to rigorously maintain and expand Angels quality collection has set a standard of excellence that is unique amongst its competitors, all whilst retaining the family atmosphere that has been such an integral part of the business for seven generations.
As a custodian of this valuable and irreplaceable resource for the current and future generations of designers, Tim with the support of his family and a loyal team of employees, has placed Angels at the epicentre of the costume industry.
Tim was Chairman of BAFTA for three years and has also served as a Governor of the BFI.
