Name Donald BaldWin Based Glasgow Occupation Designer and costume deSigner manufacturer

Background I've always been interested in clothes from a very early age when l was sixteen or seventeen l used to make Barbie clothes for a relative. so I'd always been creative. It was really my partner who encouraged me to study fashion so I applied and got accepted at Cardonald College.

My first real Job in costume design was for a play at Parsley Arts Centre and from that I got more similar robs and started dOing one-off commiSSions. The biggest financral Job I've ever had was a $1500 cornrnrssron to design and make a slipper. That helped me pay my way through college. I'm now dorng a lot more work for solo designers and costume and dance companies.

When you design your own clothes, what kind of style do you specialise in? For my own clothes it's anything and everything. l don't follow trends. I like to be different and go against the grain.

Where do you get your inspiration from? I wouldn't so much call rt inspiration, but I love people watching. I do however watch a lot of sci-fr movres for the costume design. Jean Paul Gaultier's designs for The 5th Element were incredible.

Which designers influence you? lf any I wOuId have to say Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood.

What is your long term goal? To be known for doing something different with clothes. to put an edge on boring clothes. One thing I'd really like to do is deSign more clothes for larger sized people. There is such a gap in the market for interesting clothes for bigger Sizes. Where can we buy your designs? By email dor' or phone 0141 .129 6718.
