A costume designer, born in Salford, Manchester, in 1940. She studied at the Regional College of Art in Manchester and started working alongside Cecil Beaton in the spectacular designs for the theatrical version of My Fair Lady. She made her debut as a costume designer in 1966 in Judith, by Daniel Mann. Since then she has worked on almost forty films for directors such as François Truffaut, Richard Lester, Paul Verhoeven or Richard Donner. In 1971 she won an Oscar for her work in Nicholas and Alexandra by Franklin J. Shaffner. She settled in Spain and began to work regularly in Spanish films where she has won two Goyas for her work in Remando al viento (Rowing in the wind, 1988) by Gonzalo Suárez, and Canción de cuna (Cradle Song, 1994) by José Luis Garci. She has put her subtle original conception of costume design into practice in cinema, theatre, ballet and television where her work in the mini-series Casanova won her an Emmy nomination. Yvonne Blake lives in Madrid, but works half the time in Los Angeles and half in Spain. One of her latest collaborations has been The Sacrifice, shot in Almería starring Willem Dafoe.
