Fully qualified Costume maker with historical and

Happy to make a whole range of both mens and women’s clothing from wedding dresses to suits to alterations.

I’ve been a freelance costume maker since I graduated from Bournemouth Arts University in 2012 with a BA Hons in Costume and Performance Design. 

Since then I have worked for a wide range of clients in film, theatre, tv and circus. I’m currently based at the Invisible Circus in Bristol.

Acrobatic costumes

At the beginning of 2016 I had the privilege of making three costumes for a very talented performer and creative called Charlene Whitehead. We originally met on tour at Giffords Circus in 2015 and I am so pleased to have been able to work with this lovely lady!rn I worked with Charlene to design original costumes that she can wear to perform in comfortably that will withstand acrobatic and hoop routines touring with Spark Circus.rn

The costume I created is one of the main costumes of the production and was worn by the leading Actress. It consisted of an 18th century inspired corset, a blouse, a skirt and an apron.
