Anna Robbins

Costume designer, Edinburgh College of Art

The Cross Trust gave me invaluable financial support whilst studying at Edinburgh College of Art, enabling me to focus on my degree with less worry about supporting myself. It meant I was able to work less to supplement my studies and, without doubt, this allowed me to dedicate more time and energy into my work.

I graduated in 2005 with a First Class Honours in Performance Costume Design and with this footing I have been fortunate enough to have worked solidly in the film and television industry ever since.

I will always be incredibly thankful for the Trust's generosity towards me.
