50 Designers/50 Costumes: Concept to Character

September 9, 2004


“Whether they are working on films set in the reality of the contemporary era or a fantastic imaginary world, or one that requires historical accuracy, all costume designers approach their work with a profound attention to character and a desire to serve the story. This Academy publication celebrates the work of these consummate artists and includes costumes designed for recent films of all genres, with each costume communicating the essence of the character for whom it was designed.”
