Estate of David Walker

David Walker (1934-2008) studied design at the Central School of Art under Jeanetta Cochrane. He began his career principally as a costume designer, working at Theatre Workshop in 1960 and then at the Royal Court Theatre, the RSC and the Royal Ballet. He had become one of the world's leading designers especially accaimed as an opera and ballet designer and had created productions for every major opera house and ballet company in the world.

Few costume designers could encompass both registers as readily as David Walker... His intricately coloured designs were grounded in an affectionate and encyclopedic sense of period, his sense of magic was delicately picturesque.
