Sue Willmington - Costume designer

I was born in Scarborough and I have been a costume designer for 43 years. I mostly work in Opera which is where my career began at English National Opera.

I enjoy being involved with a project from the beginning, alongside the director and stage designer developing a scenario that will tell the story.

I enjoy all aspects of the work with both historical, fantasy and modern clothes.

I have a degree in Fine Art and use those abilities to create the designs.

I love fashion and textiles and beautiful workmanship.

I have worked all over the world in my job and I have met some amazing people, but I am also happy to be at home on the North Yorkshire Moors.
