THR's Costume Designer Roundtable interview

The Hollywood Reporter has done yet another of their very fine roundtable interviews. This latest is features Costume Designers. As with the previous interviews, this one lacks diversity (although there is I suppose some gender diversity with the inclusion of two men). However, the designers gathered are knowledgable and experienced, with many of them having started in theatre. None of them, however, initially set out to become costume designers.

The featured designers are Jacqueline Durran (Anna Karenina), Joanna Johnston (Lincoln), Paco Delgado (Les Misérables), Mark Bridges (The Master), Colleen Atwood (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Julie Weiss (Hitchcock).

Topics discussed include misconceptions about the job, competitiveness, working long hours, ongoing collaborations with directors, working with actors, regrets and advice for up-and-comers in the field.
