I'm a freelance costume assistant and trainee, based in West Sussex.

I recently graduated from the MA in Costume Design for Performance at London College of Fashion. Alongside my course I designed costume for many student short films as well as assisting designers on commercials, music videos and independent productions. I designed several projects for the National Film and Television School including graduation films, animation and TV production. Most recently I was a costume assistant to the supervisor at the Brit awards 2016 for ITV. 

I have excellent construction and machine sewing skills and knowledge of suppliers. I'm experienced in sourcing, hiring and buying costume, fittings and alterations, dressing high-profile cast, crowd costuming, continuity, organising transport, budgeting, time-management, liasing with production/other departments, garment care/laundry, fabric sourcing and styling extras. I have a full, clean driver's licence.
