Annie Symons

Costume Designers

Annie began her career in costume at the age of 14, skipping off school to work in the local theatre. After graduating from Hornsey School of Art with a degree in Fine Art (painting, performance and filmmaking) she cut her teeth in Film & Costume Design at the National Film & TV School, financing this part of her education by working at the London Palladium.

Annie then designed several shorts and features for the British Film Institute with some of the UK’s most innovative and creative directors. During this period she was simultaneously designing for commercials, music videos, a fashion company in Italy, and running her own label “Manifest”.

Since then Annie has gone on to design many film and television productions, including Worried About A Boy which won a BAFTA TV Award for Best Costume Design; Crimson Petal & the White, which won an RTS Award for Best Costume Design; and Great Expectations, which garnered an Emmy Award for Outstanding Costumes. Other television credits include, The Hollow Crown, Da Vinci’s Demons, and the upcoming series The Terror. Film projects include The Woman in Black 2:  Angel of Death. Her recent work on Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur can be seen on the big screen from May this year.
