This week my guest is Sophie O’Neill, a costume designer whose credits include Clio Barnard’s upcoming film Ali & Ava, costume supervising on British indie films like Jawbone, Iona and The Selfish Giant and costume buying for the likes of Everest and the TV series The Last Panthers. Don’t worry, if you’re wondering what all those different roles mean, we break it down.

We also talk about how she finds inspiration, where she looks for costumes and what happens to them after a production wraps, how getting an agent has changed her career and what her favourite part of the job is.

This episode was recorded pre-lockown, if you’re wondering why we sound particularly cheery and there’s no mention of the Rona.
