BA (Hons) Costume for Performance

About me

My passion is designing and creating costumes. I was drawn to London because it offered the best opportunities to study BA (Hons) Costume for Performance and to work in the industry. My course is a is a combination of design and making, so we work twice as hard. Fashion-wise, I enjoy everything vintage, particularly clothing. My favourite period is the 1950s colourful and lots of patterns. This summer I’ve been organising and sampling costumes for the Nutcracker and Anna Karenina by sampling fabrics and assisting in the designing of costumes. I am a real team player, there’s nothing better than a group of individuals with flair. But to achieve results, the focus is key. I plan, collaborate and communicate well, to achieve the best output. My course allows me to be highly skilled at sewing and creating costumes. Please have a look pictures of my course costumes, Comic-con designs and creations to see my work.
