For her memorable costume design on the miniseries Pride and Prejudice, directed by Simon Langton and starring Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, Dinah Collin won an Emmy Award and received a BAFTA Award nomination. She had previously won a BAFTA Award for her work on the miniseries Portrait of a Marriage, directed by Stephen Whittaker and starring Janet McTeer and Cathryn Harrison; and received prior BAFTA nominations for her work on Claude Whatham’s teleplay The Gay Lord Quex and Elijah Moshinsky’s miniseries Cymbeline.
She was costume designer for Paul Greengrass on six features and telefilms: The Bourne Supremacy, Bloody Sunday, The Theory of Flight, The Fix, The Murder of Stephen Lawrence, and the Academy Award-nominated United 93. Her other feature work includes Roman Polanski’s The Ghost Writer; Michael Caton-Jones’ Shooting Dogs (a.k.a. Beyond the Gates); and Michael Radford’s Flawless, starring Michael Caine and Demi Moore.
Ms. Collin’s television series credits as costume designer include one season of the long-running Last of the Summer Wine; installments of Campion, starring Peter Davison, which aired in the U.S. as Mystery! presentations; and episodes of the cult favorite Doctor Who.
More recently, she has expanded her purview to design costumes for two National Theatre productions: Nicholas Hytner’s staging of Much Ado About Nothing, with Zoë Wanamaker and Simon Russell Beale, and Melly Still’s staging of Nation. She then reteamed with the latter director to design costumes for his production of the opera Cunning Little Vixen, which debuted in May 2012 at The Glyndebourne Festival.
