To accompany our chat with Matt Lucas, we’re thrilled to present Richard’s conversation with Annie Hardinge. Annie and Matt’s longstanding collaboration is a perfect example of creative synchronicity, highlighting our quest to illuminate the costuming process from as many perspectives as possible.
Annie is a multi award-winning British costume designer. Her career started at the BBC, where over a period of 15 years she developed a unique niche collaborating with the sharpest comedy brains to create iconic characters including ‘Black Adder’, ‘The Royle Family’, ‘The IT Crowd’ and ‘Little Britain’.
Upon leaving for a freelance career, the relationships forged at the BBC propelled her to fresh challenges and new artistic heights.
