Historical costume is my passion! I trained as a Costumier for Theatre and Film at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and was lucky enough to learn my millinery skills from the head milliner of the English National Opera. After graduating I worked in the Bristol Old Vic Theatre Costume Dept for several years, followed by freelance work for the BBC and Angels The Costumiers working on several feature films.
I have always loved period costume. Most of my youth was spent with my nose in a book on fashion history as well as collecting any antique costume I could get my hands on to study. I have always created historical costume as a hobby and decided it was about time I shared my work with others who share my passion. I live a stones throw from Bath the centre of all things Regency so I often spend time mooching around absorbing the atmosphere for inspiration for my designs.
