Open Doors

Costume professional based in the North West (England) with close links to the South West and Scotland. Currently working in wardrobe for touring theatre.

I am a creative, capable and conscientious individual with the ability to use my initiative as well as working well along-side others. 

My desire to work within the costume industry came as a natural progression out of my love for film, performing arts, dressmaking and fashion history.  I enjoy working in a variety of different areas within costume/wardrobe. My most recent experience has primarily been working within theatre and wardrobe for touring productions however I have a particular enthusiasm for working on set and in roles for costume in Film and High End Television production. I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities I have had to work in the industry and I look forward to learning and expanding my skillset as I continue with my career.
