    About me

    I've always had a fascination with the transformative nature of clothing. I therefore studied costume design at University of the Arts London. Due to my studies and various work placements I have experience in theatre, film, TV and burlesque costume. Costume for screen was always my main focus, but I had the opportunity to work in theatre as a Wardrobe Manager on a panto at CAST Theatre Doncaster and then as a Wardrobe Technician/Dresser at the Royal Shakespeare Company. My experience at the latter job ensured my wardrobe maintenance is impeccable. My making skills include pattern drafting, cutting-on-the-stand, fabric dyeing, surface decoration, breakdown, machine sewing and hand stitching.
