Building a costume career
Faye Fullerton is Head of Production Costume at The Royal Opera House. She describes how she got into the industry, with advice for people wanting to get into costume careers.
“When I started my training at the London College of Fashion, my thought was just clothes, fashion, high street fashion.
“Then we started studying the history of costume, and I knew instantly I wanted to make, to be involved in the process of period costumes, every type of costume that was seen onstage. I wanted it to be seen by many many people and for it to remain as part of a rep for many years.”
