» Costume design

The costume design collection contains - same as the production / set design stock - visual artworks providing an insight into the work of a costume designer. Consisting of less items than the production / set design stock, the collection nevertheless sheds light on the working methods of different generations of costume designers. Materials have been attributed to their respective creators and sorted by film title.
