I am a Costume Designer for Film, Theatre and Television, with a particular passion for fashion history and archival research, specialising in the work of Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn. I wrote my dissertation on this topic, entitled Fashion in Film: How the collaboration between actress Audrey Hepburn and fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy redefined the relationship between costume and couture, which received a first.
Despite my deep interest in this particular epoch of fashion, I am also excited at the opportunity to discover new research for every design project I undertake - combining the contextual evidence I uncover with my own aesthetic to create a costume that is best for the character and their story.
I love the active collaboration involved in this work, from directors, to producers, cinematographers and actors alike, in order to reveal the power of story-telling through clothes.
I graduated from the BA (Hons) Costume Construction degree at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, with first class honours.
