THR: COLLEEN ATWOOD POTENTIAL OSCAR HOPEFUL
The Hollywood Reporter listed 20 of the top costume designers this past year that are potential Oscar hopefuls.
Listed at #6 is SWATH's very own Colleen Atwood. Not to sound like we're playing favorites... OK we are. We believe she should have a nomination. The gowns she made for Charlize Theron's 'Ravenna' alone deserve their own nomination.
Colleen tells THR about her humble beginnings as she began her career as a costume designer.
"I got pregnant in high school and had a baby," said Colleen Atwood, Snow White and the Huntsman's costume designer, of her modest beginnings. "And so I raised my daughter by working at all kinds of jobs, from factory work to waitressing. When she was out of high school, I went to NYU and took a summer course there in film school, and ended up on the little projects, doing the clothes for some reason, and then starting to kind of be a runner and assistant in the costume world."
