I began developing my skills in stagecrafts whilst studying production design for Events and Live performance. Furthering my skill-set, I have trained in Fashion and Costume Design.
Developing skills in corsetry, underpinnings and structures; I have a practical grounding in the manufacture of silhouettes and shapes of fashions past, which are the fundamentals of costume.
Sampling garments from the 14th century to present day, this training has strengthened my skills and understanding of costume history, costume-making, fabrics, durability, and costume design.
I have worked acrosss the costume industry in film, theatre, fashion, music and workroom.
I posess an understanding of the costume design process from work-room to screen; through to maintaining the integrity of costume design on-set, and the day to day responsibilities of the costume department.
I can sew and repair costumes on-set, have a strong eye for dressing and styling, and move easily between on-set to assistant, workroom fittings and costume truck.
I have worked at fashion week in Rome, London and Amsterdam and as an additional costume assistant for the A-list including Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys.
As a Stylist, I bring my background in costume through into fashion. I enjoy telling stories using contempoary fashion and design as a tool to express character, beauty and lifestyle.
