Rebekah Abrams

Freelance Fashion / Costume designer/maker

  • Location: Essex
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

On leaving university in 2006 after completing a BA (Hons) in fashion design, I taught Fashion in both senior schools and in adult education for 8 years, whilst building my own buisness GothCloth. 

I have experiance in working for a range of clients including the magic circle, animal traniers for tv and film, PR films etc. I also pride myself in having developed relationships with minority groups such as transgender and gypsy communities who have become regular clients. 

I am dedicated to working in a sustainable way, running my studio using solar panels and a wind turbine to power my equipment. I recycle and source fabrics and embellishments locally wherever possible. 

Please see my website www.gothclothclothing.co.uk for examples of my work.
