Vogue Ball

One of my most enjoyable projects was working with Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts as designer for House of LIPA for the Homotopia Grand Vogue Ball. I designed and created the costumes for the catwalk performances at the ball. House of LIPA won the trophy for Most Outstanding Contribution on the night.

Mini Big Day

A bride-to-be asked me to make some miniature figures for her wedding cake, to keep as a memento of her big day. I worked closely with the bride to make sure every detail was right, even dressing the model in offcuts of fabric from her bespoke dress.

Story Hat

I created a story hat as part of a costume for the storyteller at Norwood Primary School Literature Festival. The felt hat features characters and scenes from popular fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
