Matt Price is a British Costume Designer who has been working in the industry for 20 years. His chat today with Jeremy examines the journey he has takento where he is today.
Matt always had a passion for photography which led to studying Theatre Designat Saint Martin’s and upon graduationhe started his career as a costumier in the contemporary department at Angels under the leadership of Richard Davies.
Seven years later he left Angels to become a freelance costume designer as he found that the relationships he had made while organising music nights in his spare time helped him to break into the music video industry. From there Matt kept striving to move further into the industry and established himself as a designer for both TV and Film productions. Over the 10 years he has now been designing, he has worked across most mediums, and has become known for the realism he creates in his characters.
Matt believes in the strength of narrative that comes from creating a character’s costumes, and has used that knowledge to further the projects he works on and to grow as a designer.
His productions credits include Fighting With My Family, The Nest, The Selfish Giant, Brexit: The Uncivil War and the soon to be released Supernova.
