    About me

    I am a freelance costume designer, maker and wardrobe assistant based in London.

    After gaining a reputation as a creative and reliable designer on student theatre productions while studying at the University of Cambridge, I decided to forge a career in costumes.

    I spent seven weeks travelling around India researching costumes in performance including four weeks at Kerala Kalamandalam, a performing arts university near Thrissur, Kerala.

    Since then, I have worked on a variety of projects including an educational Shakespeare tour of America, London fringe plays, two pantomimes at the Millfield Theatre in Edmonton, some independent films and the UK premiere of Maury Yeston's musical "Death Takes a Holiday" at the Charing Cross Theatre.

    Professional Recommendations

    Laura Sedgwick Production Co-ordinator

    Emma is an excellent designer and team member. During our US educational tour, she not only provided imaginative designs to brief, but also maintained the costumes and set whilst on tour, as well as being a well-liked member of the team in a general sense. She can design, make and source both costumes and set on a small or large budget.
