Biography

Costumer Lindy Hemming worked extensively in British film, primarily in modern attire, but succeeded with entries into period designs as well. Her work ran the gamut from gritty realistic clothing for Mike Leigh films to the cartoon-like glamour of James Bond movies. Hemming attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) where she switched her concentration from stage management to design. Upon graduating from RADA, she began her work on the British stage, designing for fringe productions including those at the Open Space Theatre. More work followed, and soon Hemming was designing for West End productions and the famed Royal Shakespeare Company.
