From an early age I have been involved in the arts, from performing on stage to working backstage supporting cast...

Production - Period tv drama/film This dress is a reproduction of an original 1910’s evening dress that can be found in the Museum of London collections. The original was made for and worn by Lady Maud Warrender, a young Philanthropist and opera singer who became one of the first patrons of the arts and music. This dress was completely hand sewn using the original pattern from the Janet Arnold book, Patterns of fashion. The hand embroidery took over 20 hours to complete.

Production – Music video. This costume was interpreted from a piece of art from the 1960’s. This particular piece of art was interesting as the artist may have been ‘Alan Aldridge best known for his psychedelic artwork for the Beatles and the Who, amongst others.’ The making process was based upon the Hanbok that is a tradition Korean costume known as a performance dress prominent around 1392-1897 by higher society to show authority by royals.

Production – Contemporary Ballet. For the Royal Opera House prize, I designed this costume for the character Manon, from the ballet production Manon. The greys and gold represent the conflict she feels between love and wealth. The inspiration behind this costume was a modern adaptation of Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon with the English National Ballet in 2018. My design encompasses elements of 18th century fashion, with a stomacher detail. By the late 1700’s the French Revolution culottes, which were frequently worn by the wealthy, became a symbol of the upper class and oppression. The drama surrounding culottes only intensified as they made the transition from a symbol of male wealth into a freeing, feminist garment for women.
