I am a costume designer & costume maker based in West London. I have been in business for more than 10 years now, working mainly for private clients, but also for museums and movie productions. I specialize in period costume, corsetry and accessories.
I hope to meet photographers and other creative individuals to collaborate with to create something amazing we both profit from. I'm also available as a period style consultant.
Just make me an offer I can't refuse!
A NOTE ABOUT BORROWING COSTUMES FROM ME:
If you are interested in borrowing costumes for a photoshoot please calculate enough time to prepare - most of my costumes are in storage OUTSIDE of the UK.
Available costumes/accessories (mainly 18th & 19th c. costume) can be viewed here:
I do not run a costume rental, so I do not have a range of sizes to choose from. The majority of my costumes comes from my personal wardrobe and will not fit on extremely skinny models, you should at least be a size 12/14 to fit.
I prefer to attend shoots in person and dress the models myself and thus will not ship costumes anywhere. As I don't do cheap materials, each costume is an object of considerable value and will not go anywhere without me. I don't mind traveling a bit if you provide transport / travel cost.
If you're unsure about period hair & makeup to match the costume please ask me, I will be happy to give instructions to your team.
