A series of monthly talks, by people of standing in various creative endeavours, held at Longwood Estate and hosted by our fabulous Friends of Kokomai.
The first is with exceptionally talented costume designer James Acheson. Not only has James won three Oscars, but also a Bafta for costume design for The Last Emperor.
James will bring some of his costumes and show film clips, providing ‘behind the scenes’ commentary on the techniques of costume design.
