Recent graduates have worked on children’s blockbuster Paddington 2, Disney’s Artemis Fowl and Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs. Others have gone on to work at the Royal Opera House, the V&A Museum, Scottish Opera and Northern Ballet.

Megan Baker, Director of Performance Costume at Edinburgh College of Art, said: “The students’ wonderful designs showcase their enormous skill and creativity.

“Audiences were delighted with our show, which was full of colour, drama and iconic characters from some of the most-loved children’s films.”
