Dark Shadows Costume Designer Colleen Atwood On Working With Johnny Depp, Eva Green And Chloe Moretz
INTERVIEW >> Colleen Atwood on working with Hollywood's hottest stars
You may not have heard Colleen Atwood's name before, but you'll certainly know her work. The three-time Oscar winner (and nine-time nominee) is a costume designer whose designs have featured in films from Edward Scissorhands (1990) to Alice in Wonderland (2010). She regularly collaborates with director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp so who better to spill the beans on their magical, gothic world...
Grazia Daily: Why is it that you’ve gone into costume design rather than fashion design?
Colleen: I liked the style of working in costumes and the opportunities to create whole worlds appealed to me in a different way to fashion.
Grazia Daily: Might it be that fashion is more limited or subject to trends?
Colleen: No, I think there are limitations in every way – designers limit themselves, I don’t think the nature of the business necessarily limits people. I just like the idea of making movies and being part of that process.
