Iris Ibanez-Rojas

Costume Maker & Costume Supervisor

View Iris's work

My experience as a costume maker includes period corsetry, underpinnings and costume (from Tudor period to 20th century), classical dancewear, leatherwork and prop making of armour in Worbla. My last costume making experience was with English touring company White Horse Theatre in Germany. As costume supervisor, I worked for small productions in opera and panto, and as a wardrobe assistant/dresser in student productions. In the film industry, I assisted costume designer Michaela Mokra during the shooting of a television series “Jenny” Piknik Productions,¬† in Bratislava, Slovakia. I am looking to develop and continue my experience in the theatre, opera, film, and high-end television industries.
