Ciéranne Kennedy Bell
An award-winning costume designer for stage and screen, I specialise in authentic 1920-1960s clothing and contemporary stage costume. With 5 years' experience in the industry, my West End credits include Everybody's Talking About Jamie, The Play That Goes Wrong, Strictly Ballroom, and I have worked on significant television and film projects including Black Mirror and The Code.
A highly skilled and versatile costumier, I have worked with visionaries such as Matthew Bourne to make costumes for his 2016 production of The Red Shoes, and taken inspiration from science fiction classics to bring episodes of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror to life (Netflix 2018).
My work has garnered attention from critics and festivals alike, and I have been nominated for award including Best Costume in the Birmingham Film Festival 2018 and 2019. I was proud to receive the 2018 Southern Shorts Excellence in Costuming Award for World War II short film, The Code.
I am also passionate about vintage fashion, adept at sourcing original pieces and patterns (including a pair of unique 1960s Dior shoes found in a store in Crouch End) as well as recreating vintage wear, bespoke suits and tailoring, offerings these original pieces to clients via my sister company, CKB Vintage.
