    About me

    Set, Costume and general lover of art and fashion history.

    Catherine Simpson is a London based, young enthusiastic set and costume designer recently graduating from Rose Bruford College, studying BA Theatre Design. She believes that as the designer she should captivate the audience using her set and costumes as a way of escapism and heightened reality. She has a passion for accurate and stylized designs. Her love for fashion history within costume has grown throughout her studying, completing her dissertation on the relationship between 1930’s photographers and fashion designers. Catherine also has a strong love for art history, which lends its self to her designing.
