About

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.

WHY CHOOSE REGENCY REGALIA?
The difference between authentic reproduction costume worthy of TV, Film and historical re-enactment, compared to store brought costume is in the details. Its the time spent selecting accurate materials and trims in colours appropriate to the period. And it is this process I absolutely adore, really sinking my teeth into the details and background of each and every item I make. All my work is based on extensive research looking at surviving pieces in museum collections, fashion plates and paintings of the period. I really do do my homework! I spend a huge amount of time sourcing my materials and trims from all over the world to get the most accurate and affordable materials so that I can offer you the best quality costume at affordable prices. I really do do this for the love of it, the joy of seeing my ideas come to life and sharing that with you is such a pleasure.

All the items in my shop would be suitable for historical Re-enactments, Jane Austen events, Theatre and Film productions, Regency themed weddings and of course costumed parties.

Please feel free to contact me regarding bespoke gowns and accessories if you have a design you have always dreamed of or seen in a film or on TV or if require something for a particular event don't hesitate to contact me. I am always happy to offer help with fabric and trimming choices. I would love to make the outfit of your dreams a reality. I also welcome any feedback or suggestions you may have. If you don't see what you are looking just ask. My costumes are all created and stored in a smoke and pet free workroom.

*Regency Regalia were featured in the BBC TV documentary "The Many Lovers of Miss Jane Austen".
