Period Costume Collections

I am now offering a new service in costume reconstruction for museums, galleries, collections and exhibitions at both public and private venues.

Replica costumes based on rigorous research, and drawing on my training at the Comique Opera in Berlin and other major Opera Houses, can greatly enhance the authenticity of your event or display, and bring any historical period vividly to life.

The service combines meticulous research and knowledge of period materials with an awareness of contemporary body shapes and concepts, as well as the fabrics and trims available today, allowing us to work within realistic budgets.

I can also offer bespoke workshops on historical costume making to integrate into your outreach and gallery programme. Please book well in advance for this service.

Here is a selection of my previous pieces.
