Jo Slater

Costume Designer

Jo’s first job, straight out of college, was Dresser on the BBC’s ‘Byker Grove’. From there, stints on ‘Dr Finlay’ and ‘Taggart’ in Scotland saw her move up to the Supervisor role, and ten years after joining ‘Byker Grove’, she got her first Costume Designer job on ITV’s ‘The Quest’ with David Jason. Set between 1959 and the present day, it wasn’t only a break, but a major challenge for her. Since then, her work has embraced contemporary (’55 Degrees North’), period (‘Distant Shores’), comedy (‘We Are Klang’) and drama-doc (‘The Marchioness Disaster’). Described as ‘a delight to work with’ by almost everyone who’s ever hired her, Jo has bases in London, Manchester and the northeast.
