Give me a puzzle any day. I love analyzing individual components to see how they’re expected to assemble, then critically reviewing the overall picture to find different and unexpected ways to reach a successful outcome. The transformation of flat fabric to dimensional garment never ceases to amaze me.
Costuming allows me to imaginatively combine my love of intricate details, storytelling, and construction to create elegantly dramatic (and assuredly embellished) narratives. The characters in my line come from Hans Christian Andersen’s classic “The Nightingale.”
