BA (Hons) Theatre and Screen: Costume Interpretation

About me

With a keen interest in Costume & Dress History, I love all things old, smelly & in your Grandma's wardrobe! I was awarded runner-up in the Patterns of Fashion Competition 2020 and have an enthusiasm for researching, handling and recreating historically accurate garments. I have a keen interest in historical maternity wear, especially corsets and the correlation between societies expectations, social class and the comfort of the wearer. As well as a growing collection of original historical fashion, I also have a vast number of vintage, mainly fashion, photography. The ambiguity of such photographs allows the viewer to interpret the detail, design and character in an individual way, informed by their own background, and this is what I find most interesting. I am hoping to go into curation or some sort of historical costume career, through an internship or masters.
