I am a Costume Practitioner who works within all areas of costume including making, supervision, wardrobe management, dressing, dyeing and breaking down. I enjoy working collaboratively with a company and I am looking to pursue a career in theatre, television, and film.

When making, I am interested in period ladieswear, alongside completing alterations on costumes. I also have experience supervising for modern and period productions and sourcing from hire companies.

Please see below the two projects I worked on during my final year at Central.

Dates: January – March 2020

As a personal project, I made a copy of the Cinderella servant dress from the Disney Live Action 2015 Film.

I developed many ladies-wear making skills whilst creating this dress, including pattern drafting and draping on the stand. I particularly enjoyed dyeing my fabric which involved sampling different mixtures of dye and used a dye vat for the process. Surface decoration was also key to the design. I decided to hand paint the flower pattern on to the skirt and bodice. 

Stray Dogs

Role: Costume Supervisor & Wardrobe Manager

Theatre Sound Anna Akhmatova, Actor: Olivia Olsen
Theatre Sound Sir Isaiah Berlin, Actor: Ben Porter
Theatre Sound Joseph Stalin, Actor: Ian Redford

Director: Robin Herford

Designer: Paul Colwell

Production Company: Dead Letter Perfect

Dates: 13th November – 7th December 2019

Location: Park Theatre, London

Photographer: Tristram Kenton

Stray Dogs was a 1930s period play based on the life of Russian poet, Anna Akhmatova produced by Dead Letter Perfect. This was it’s debut performance.

During this process, I sourced and made period-accurate costumes, working closely with designer Paul Colwell, interpreting his designs and storing the show’s information in a Costume Bible. I communicated between each of the departments at production meetings and during the production process.

I also wardrobe managed the show throughout the run which involved laundry and maintenance of the costumes as well as a hair and make up call for Stalin.
