Extra Extra: Costume Designer Marion Boyce

Costume Designer, The Dressmaker

Marion Boyce

Maggie McGregor: Marion, I love The Dressmaker and I looked up your work. I work in fashion and I’m a fashion stylist, but I also have a background in costume design. I really admire you as a costume designer.

Marion Boyce: Well, thank you!

MM: I’m so excited to do this!

MB: Oh, wow okay.

MM: What are you working on? Are you working on any projects right now?

MB: Well I should actually be at this very moment being Italy and Croatia doing a film but that’s been pushed back which is very unfortunate because it’s quite cold in Melbourne now and it was a really great film. I’ve been working on two exhibitions. I do quite a lot of exhibition work as well which I really enjoy. I’ve been doing an exhibition, key writing an exhibition in South Australia (which is in Australia different state) with the National Trust putting together a show called the Age of Elegance from their collection. That’s going to be quite a lot of fun. In July I have a show. It’s my collection. It’s a show about collections that we put on in Brisbane. I’ve been hard at work on projects.

MM: Oh wow so a collection, like for an exhibition, will that be shown to the public?

MB: Yeah they will be. [The first] starts in July in Brisbane, Queensland, Austra
