Hello :)

I trained at the Northern College of Costume in York in historical Costume and have worked in both High End TV & Theatre. I have an extensive knowledge of period costume which has given me the ability to not only reconstruct high quality costumes but also design and create my own. In between creating made to measure costumes for clients, I sell women’s period costumes that have a unique twist.

I will work to suit your requirements, specifications & will deliver stunning costumes with a professional attitude along with my bubbly, fun loving nature. :).
