Personal Quote:

[on inventing her own design for the historical drama Rob Roy (1995)] It was very difficult to find an original tartan dating back to the period that the director liked the looks of, and it was easier to make one up so it wouldn't be wrong. In that day and age, tartans didn't exist as we know them. The tartans were earthy and designs were simple. [New York Times, 21 May 1995] See more »

Trivia:

Attended London's Central School of Art, where she studied theater design. See more »
