The Summer Course in Costume Design introduces students to the creation of film characters through the clothes they wear and their characterisation.

A character’s clothing in a film tells us a lot about who they are. It places us in a particular period, it talks to us about what they do, their mood etc. It plays an essential, but at the same time silent, role that makes a film credible and memorable.
