I have always been interested in fashion. From a very young age I was making clothes for Barbie dolls from scrap fabric and with an interest in history was always copying and imagining my own costumes. I studied fashion after finishing school and went on to work in the industry for Country Road, Jag, Adidas and Sportscraft. Since the birth of my children I have worked from home doing Bridal wear, and a couple of Brownlow dresses recently. I am particularly interested in historical corsetry and like to experiment with it, quite often using old methods in contemporary clothing. I have really enjoyed designing a garment for Witches which is my first experience of costume design.
