Behind the Seams, an Interview with Ian Fulcher

Ian Fulcher is a British Costume Designer who has been working in the industry for over 20 years, he started his career in the film industry as a Costumier in the Angels Ladies Department in 2000 before stepping away in 2003 to begin his journey to becoming a costume designer.

Ian like several of our interviewees did not study costume at University, instead he gained his degree in Fashion Design, Marketing and Manufacturing at the University of Huddersfield before he went onto set up his own fashion label.

Ian has worked throughout the industry in several roles including Assistant Designer and Costume Supervisor forging great relationships along the way that have stood him in good stead as his career has evolved.  Ian is passionate about what he does and believes very strongly in aiming high to achieve the goals he sets for each production.  Key to all of this is also how he feels about the teams he works with and how important it is not just for him but for the team themselves that they are all there to support each other and provide the best results for each production.

Ian has designed for Internationally acclaimed TV Series including Humans (AMC, Channel 4), The Man in an Orange Shirt (Hulu Channel 4) and Giri Haji (Netflix) as well as on BAFTA winning productions including Marvellous and Murdered by My Boyfriend.  His latest project It’s a Sin was written by Russel T Davies for HBO and Channel 4 and comes out later this year.
