BBC Costume Design Trainee Scheme

I have spent two very interesting days going through the portfolio submissions from this year's applicants for the BBC Costume Design Trainee scheme.

Costume Designer Linda Mattock originally set up the scheme which is now run by Alice Skidmore. Linda and Alice are regular assessors so I was really pleased when they asked me to join them this year.

We looked through roughly 100 portfolios and whittled them down to a group of ten who will be invited for interviews in July, competing for two positions.

I can't wait to meet the applicants who got through, their work is strong, all quite different from each other and each one, at this stage, showing great potential.
