Costume Society Awards Night

Costume Society Awards Night: 21 July 2021

Hollywood costume designer Michele Clapton announced the winners of the Costume Society's Janet Arnold Patterns of Fashion and Patterns for Performance awards at the grand finale of The Costume Society Conference 2021

The Costume Society's annual Patterns of Fashion and Patterns for Performance awards celebrate Janet Arnold’s significant contribution to dress history and specifically her invaluable texts Patterns of Fashion to inform costume practices. Both of the awards invite students of dress history, costume practice and costuming to develop a final outcome using one of her patterns from the books published. The Patterns of Fashion award asks the applicants to produce a historically accurate outcome informed by one of Janet Arnold’s patterns, and the Patterns for Performance invites the applicants to use one of Janet Arnold’s patterns to inspire a design for a performance garment.

This year saw a very high standard of entries, including submissions from UAL Wimbledon College of Arts, Arts University Bournemouth, the St Petersburg State University, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, South Essex College, Nottingham Trent University, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of Huddersfield.
