Altaira Morris

Costume, Wardrobe and Stylist

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a London based costume designer and stylist.

My professional experience spans work in costume and production design for TV, various music videos, feature and short films, and fashion shoots. I am consistently described as an organised person, who copes well under pressure and to strict deadlines.

Although mostly self taught, I have studied at the London College of Fashion. I am a talented dress maker, as well as experienced in creating, styling and sourcing/making costumes, set standby, costume maintenance, continuity, breakdown, returns, designing and sourcing props, and set dressing.  Enthusiastic, quirky, conscientious, and efficient; with exceptional attention to detail which often leads me to be intricately involved with continuity.

I also enjoy designing and hand making props, and handsewn dolls.
