Why did you want to work for the Royal Opera House?
I’ve always been in awe of the glamour of the Royal Opera House from a young age. Luckily my parents took me to see a ballet when I was about ten and since then I've always wanted to be part of such an inspiring and design-led organisation. Covent Garden is the hub of London and it’s exciting to work in the thick of it.
What inspired you to work within the costumes department?
I have a natural love of design and textiles so having the opportunity to help bring these stunning productions to life through my own creativity is thrilling.
How do contemporary fashions/trends within costume-making influence your designs?
Fashion trends throughout the years have always played a powerful role in ballet and opera costume designs. Each production - from the post-war The Sleeping Beauty in 1946 through to this year’s stunning production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - capture the feel of their era. I suppose fashion itself is constantly changing and finding new ways to surprise us and we could say the same about the arts.
