Film and television

As well as our work with theatre companies and educational bodies, we also regularly hire costumes to film and television production companies.

Sometimes we can help stimulate the ideas behind the design as was the case when Janty Yates was designing the costumes for Gladiator. Before meeting with director, Ridley Scott, she visited the Store to find breastplates that would demonstrate the style she wanted for Russell Crowe.

Janty's designs for the film won her an Academy Award, and to show her gratitude she made a special visit to the Costume Store with the award.

You may have also seen our costumes in:

  • Dr Who 
  • Don't Tell the Bride 
  • Merlin 
  • Bachelorette USA 
  • Henry IV and Henry V – BBC 
  • Teri Meri Kahaani, or Our Story (Bollywood film) 
  • Deal or no Deal 
  • Shakespeare in Love 
  • Elizabeth 
  • Braveheart 
  • Anna Karenina
