Brixton costume designer Sandy Powell gets Hollywood A-listers signing her famous suit

Brixton costume designer Sandy Powell has been nominated for more Oscars than any other living designer. She's won an impressive three but now it's an outfit she is wearing that is making all the headlines.

Sandy has created a walking work of art signed by more than 100 famous names including Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Brad Pitt.

"I started off with a plain white suit because I got a Bafta nomination I didn't expect", Sandy told ITV News.

"I didn't want to spend any more money on clothes so the suit started life as a pattern for a suit I had made last year for the Oscars."

Sandy's suit will be auctioned through a charity aiming to raise more than £3m to save and maintain a house of the late film director Derek Jarman.

"We're hoping someone with a lot of money will pay a lot of money for it!", Sandy added.
