Stage & Screen

Great performances are supported by amazing costumes…

Aladdin opens this Saturday 27th November at Mercury Theatre, Colchester. 🥳
This week everybody will be busy with the technical rehearsals.
I will be counting down the days to the grand opening by posting a little sneaky peak into Princess Jasmine's wardrobe each day.
@kittypowercostume, @chantellejoanne, @mercurytheatrecolchester would you like to join me in this countdown?
It all started a few months ago when I received a parcel containing these gorgeous fabrics, a design & a set of measurements.

Day 21 of #standbyforpanto is - Dames. with @michellebristowcostume
I don't often get to make the Dames - not being a fan of the glue gun.
However, way back in 2001 (!) I got to make a Dame outfit for Harrogate Theatre. It had a lovely 'ladies who lunch' feel to it. To this day I can see her in Betty's
Designer: Kate Stanton

A truly memorable theatrical experience needs to be believable, so why trust anything other than my track record of creativity and reliability displayed across some of the finest stages in the country. My credits include: Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Royal Shakespeare Company, Salisbury Playhouse, Pitlochery Festival Theatre, Cunard’s QM2 and many more.

Working as a freelance costumier from my North London workshop, I am happy to create individual costumes, take on time sensitive jobs or manage your entire wardrobe. I am flexible and reliable and can travel all around the London area for meetings and fittings.
