Autumn Fairy Costume

Ragged Autumn Fairy. Made from distressed black mesh and recycled knitwear, with Strategic Leaves. The skirt is draped from slightly iridescent yellow chiffon and scraps of lace and mesh.

Lost in the Garden

The tunic is inspired by military uniforms and the 'Havah' gowns worn by Vorin women in the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. The ornate white-painted ironwork of the glasshouses at Kew inspired me to add these sheer embroidered sleeves - the fabric os slightly stiff so the sleeves are delicate yet structural and hold a voluminous shape. I also wanted to create a fantasy, forest-ranger character, lost exploring the Kew jungle like a conquistador.

Autumn Fairy Design Painting

in the art nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha because I'm a huge fan, and Mucha's work often depicts women as representations of the seasons or of nature, so it's fitting.

Autumn Leaves

I really wanted to avoid using craft leaves for this project - I wanted something more organic, and at the same time, less realistic than craft leaves. These are made from second-hand gold foiled leather and brown leather scraps, plus some gorgeous burnt orange fabric with a gold printed pattern. And red and black biro pen!

Desert Warrior Concept Art

Collaborative project with 3D Effects and Hair, Makeup and Prosthetics students at LCF, inspired by Blade Runner. We decided to choose a setting completely in contrast to the iconic Blade Runner rain-soaked city, and instead design a replicant character that had been stranded on a desert planet after their space transport had crashed.

Take Me To Church design collages

I am currently working on my Final Major Project, inspired by Anne Boleyn, and her role at the heart of the schism of the Church in England - an event the effects of which we still feel today. My project draws on a lot of Gothic architecture and Christian imagery, and I want to show in the short film how as Anne Boleyn rose, the Catholic Church fell.

Corpus Christi Carol

my first independent costume job, on a student ballet film by Lino Pollano, inspired by pre-Raphaelite paintings, the set surroundings, and the accompanying music, I designed and made a dress in shades of pale gold with a softly ragged hem and antique lace. The chiffon gave a beautiful romantic flowing movement to the choreography.
