    About me

    I am a wardrobe assistant, maker, supervisor and dresser, from Aylesbury. I am currently working as wardrobe on Kristina Rhianoff's Dance to the Music UK tour, traveling around the UK on a daily basis, doing alterations, laundry, maintenance and dressing for the shows. Before this I worked as Wardrobe Mistress for UK Productions on their pantomime, Beauty and the Beast, at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

    I have recently worked as a wardrobe assistant doing cruise ship installs for Carnival UK and often work as a casual dresser for several local theatres. As a causal dresser I have experience of working on various touring productions including musical theatre, opera, ballet and dance shows. I am also experienced at working in repertory theatre as this summer I worked for Shakespeare's Rose Theatre at Blenheim Palace as a dresser on their four Shakespearean productions.

    I graduated from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance's, Costume Production course in 2017. Where I worked on four productions as part of the wardrobe team, as well as having done several work placements, including five weeks as a wardrobe assistant for Italia Conti's various schools. After graduating I worked at Lapland UK for the 2017 Christmas season as a wardrobe assistant.

    I particularly enjoy working backstage in a theatrical setting, as I enjoy the varied work which comes from dressing, and the energy of working on a busy show and doing quick changes. I love working on the touring musicals which have come through the theatres and would love to be in the wardrobe department of a touring production.

    When I was a supervisor I liked running the budget, and managing the paperwork and organisation of fittings and costumes. I successfully managed a small team of costume assistants and felt confident resolving issues that arose with the team members.
