MOME senior lecturer Edit Szűcs receives the Ferenczy Award
Known as the costume designer of Academy Award winning film Son of Saul, Edit Szűcs has received several accolades over the past few years – most recently Best Costume at the Robert Award of the Danish Film Academy in 2021 for the 2020 film The Good Traitor.
As senior lecturer of the MOME Design Institute, she has been teaching fashion and costume design and research for several years, and believes that “Creating designs is always an expedition with all the excitement, wonder and experience that comes with it. If routine took over, I would look for a different field.”
With a penchant for experimentation, she is a regular fixture of the independent theatre, classic stone theatre, film, and exhibition scenes. With over two hundred projects under her belt as a costume designer, in addition to portraying characters, working with textile has been a pivotal experience for her, facilitating a widely variability of the outcome.
In connection with the award received in 2021 she was featured in the Fashion and Design television programme (available here) .
