Behind the Seams, an Interview with Sandy Powell

Sandy Powell

Today, Jonathan and Sandy Powell’s chat reveals that first and foremost for a costume designer to succeed it’s all about having passion for the craft. The conversation between the pair explores how this passion was first recognised and then channelled to create the career she has today that is internationally acknowledged with multiple awards and personal acclaim.

Together they discuss how Sandy’s very distinctive bold style, artistry and precise attention to detail has earned her the respect from the greatest film and theatre directors and producers working today and how her regular teams of collaborators support her vision and always enable her to effectively drive forward the process of her designs.
