Costume Design and Fashion on TV: Behind the Seams

With its position in popular culture increasingly more instrumental than that of traditional cinema, Costume Design for television has rarely been so prominent or widely celebrated. TV Critic and Entertainment Reporter Emma Bullimore (TV Times, BBC 5Live) guides us through a discussion on Costume Design and its role in storytelling and fashion, from Weatherfield to Manhattan and every dystopian future in-between.

Featuring Edward K Gibbon (Costume Design for E4’s Skins, Channel 4’s Black Mirror and Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams), Eve Salter (Costume Design, ITV’s Coronation Street) and Helen Warner (Author, Fashion on Television: Identity and Celebrity Culture, Bloomsbury Press).
