For my latest podcast episode I’m delighted to introduce a incredibly special guest esteemed costume designer, and expensive mate, Edward K Gibbon. We achieved quite a few years ago as pupils in Manchester, ended up sharing a flat with each other and expended much more time at the Haçienda than we did in the library. Edward switched courses to analyze graphic style, and upon graduating re-experienced as a tailor. Relocating to London, he proven himself as a costume designer for theatre and opera till an supply arrived alongside to function on the cult Television clearly show Skins. ‘It was the perfect job for me. The show was so excellent and groundbreaking, and it didn’t subject to them that I didn’t know what the hell I was performing half the time. It was good.’
As a costume designer, he’s managed the wardrobe office on all the things from historic dramas to Hollywood motion pictures: such as War & Peace, The Honourable Female, Black Mirror and Oscar-nominated The Missing Daughter. Tailored from the Elena Ferrante novel, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s acclaimed directorial debut stars: Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley (both up for Oscars, along with Gyllenhaal for greatest adapted screenplay), Ed Harris, Dakota Johnson and Paul Mescal. And due to the fact the crew had been doing the job in a help bubble, Edward tends to make an visual appearance as an further on the dancefloor…
In this episode, Edward joins me to talk about filming The Missing Daughter as we arrived out of the 1st lockdown, the job costume plays in storytelling, the inventive procedure and where by he resources customized pieces. Together the way, he shares some of the highlights of his profession (generally collaborating with Maggie Gyllenhaal!), impostor syndrome and what it is like to operate absent from household for extended periods. And of program, we include the standard topics of age and design.
