Black British Theatre Awards - Costume Design Recognition

Changing the Face of Costume Design 

Costume design has always been a pivotal, but an often forgotten aspect of theatre making. Where tights are involved, we've seen many a beige leg on actors of colour on stages and on screen, which is why we wanted to support the future of Black British costume designers.

The 2020 nominees for the COSTUME DESIGN RECOGNITION AWARD are: 

Jodie Simone Howe 
Maybelle Laye
Natalie Pryce

Let's celebrate the artistry and creativity of these phenomenal women who are forging a way for a truly inclusive theatre industry. Not just on stage, but behind the stage.
