Sandy Powell's costume philosophy

Hosted by

Sandy Powell has the rare distinction of being nominated twice in the best costume design category for this year's Oscars. She designed costumes for two nominees, Carol and Cinderella. Powell designs for film and theater and got her start in movies working for avant-garde filmmakers Derek Jarman and Sally Potter. She works regularly with Martin Scorsese and Todd Haynes, director of Carol, but traces her influences back to David Bowie.
