So over the last few weeks, I've been interested in these works; Crimson Peak for it's American gothic look, the BBC television series Musketeers for its hip 1630's look and The Dressmaker, for it's sumptous 1950s coutour fashion.  I enjoy learning how other costume designers approach the work, and  what they love most about the design process.

Colleen Atwood, Costume Designer

Written by


I wish I could say Colleen Atwood  is one of my peeps, but I'm afraid I haven't met her ... as yet;  however, one must remain hopeful. She is well-versed in designing  fantasy; remember these credits: The Huntsman: A Winter's War, Alice, Through The Looking Glass, Edward Scissorhands and Into the Woods, just to name a few. Now she's extending her amazing talents to television shows like Flash, Arrow and Supergirl; giving us all a weekly opportunity to see her work.
