        2017

        Head of Costume on feature film

        Morse Rose Productions

        Jul 2016 - Nov 2017
        • London, United Kingdom
        • Freelance
        • This job was my first experience working on a feature film; it was both challenging and exciting. My role was to firstly come up with all of the costume and wardrobe concepts for each character and scene, the director and myself then worked together to finalise these. I was in charge of liaising with couture designers, sourcing, and together with my assistants making and fitting the garments. I was then on set everyday dressing actors, standing by for continuity, repairing and altering costumes, giving direction to my team of assistants and keeping my department organised. This role required a great deal of meticulous planning and strong management skills. Patience and quick thinking was also necessary to combat frequent last minute design changes. I believe my strong communication and people skills allowed me to fully communicate my creative ideas, interact in a professional manor with the actors and give direction to my team.
