    About me

    I am a conscientious, hard working and dedicated wardrobe member, with 16 years West End, touring, opera, cruise ship and fringe theatre experience. I love the challenges associated with putting on a new show, as well as helping an established show to run smoothly. I am confident in all aspects of theatrical wardrobe including, but not limited to: sourcing costumes; making and altering costumes; repairs; laundry; dressing; show shopping; cast changes; costume fittings; budgeting; managing staff; scheduling; and basic wig dressing/maintenance.
