BFC scholars Aurelie Fontan, Edward Mendoza and Shanti Bell, have been mentored by designer Richard Quinn to create period outfits inspired by the series, which have been modelled by its stars Dynevor, Nicola Coughlan, Claudia Jessie, Adjoa Andoh and Golda Rosheuvel, and photographed by Amber Pinkerton.

“This collaboration with Netflix illustrates the vital position fashion plays in television, the actors’ characters were brought to life by our scholars’ beautifully designed looks for the campaign shoot.

“Richard Quinn, awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design in 2018, has also played an instrumental part in mentoring the scholars during the design process – demonstrating the power of BFC’s network and the importance of education in this partnership.”
