Freelance costume trainee

  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

As a recent graduate I am very euthanasic about the power visual element can play within productions and performances especially costume. My keen passion is period costume and fantasy costumes with historical references. I believe my BA(Hons) in Design for Theatre, Performance and Events has given me a unique perspective of how productions are made and allowed me to understand the importance of all visual aspects in performance such as costume, set, props. Also allowing me to understand how these must all work together to create an environment in which actors and performers can deliver a thought provoking and harmonious production.
