About me
I am a costume designer, supervisor and stylist working in film, TV and theatre. Previous projects have included indie features, shorts, commercial, TV and theatre ranging from contemporary styling to period accuracy and theatrical extravagance. Creativity combined with high levels of organisation and adaptability mean that I can always be relied upon to achieve the best results, making the most of resources available. I love being part of a creative team, and am am always open to new projects and opportunities. I have an MA in Costume Design for Performance from London College of Fashion where I relished the opportunity to create highly inventive, performative pieces. I specialised in costume history during my BA in History from Oxford University and am a confident maker, having always loved experimenting with fabrics and diverse materials. I am particularly interested in exploring the social and cultural implications of dress and the potential for costume to provide an active contribution in performance.

It follows a seasonal worker who dresses up as Santa Claus in a shopping centre’s Grotto, handing out gifts to children, before taking his paycheck and heading home to his children, where there are no Christmas cards, only debt reminders, and the only decorations are children’s drawings.
