Inspiring Costume Designer : Colleen Atwood

I am so obsessed with Alice in Wonderland and so I was delighted that Colleen Atwood won an Oscar this year for her costume designs in the film. She has been involved in producing costumes for over 50 films and has been nominated for 9 Oscars and has won 3 for her work in Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha and now Alice in Wonderland. Her work in Alice in Wonderland must have been so challenging due to all the size changes that Alice goes through and the clothing that she wears are very cleverly referenced to the animated dress Alice is associated with.  Here are a few examples of her sketches :
