From prototypes to finished garment
Throughout the design and construction process, our costume supervisors are there to advise on every detail such as budget, materials and custom requirements. Alongside the designers, we then produce samples, patterns and fabrics according to the specifications of each brief. Our clients are heavily involved from the start to ensure they receive a costume that audiences will love and that they feel comfortable in.
Everything we create is made to last. Whether it’s for stage or screen, we use our expert knowledge to ensure each piece is durable and functional for years to come. From our in-house workshops, we not only provide tailoring and fitting but also dyeing, beading, printing, millinery and costume maintenance.
To construct costumes and props, we work with a variety of materials including metal, wood, Lycra, fur, plasterzote, Chiffon, PVC sequins and beaded fabrics. As well as sewing and constructing several pieces by hand, our team use the latest technology and industrial machinery to deliver the very best in bespoke costumes.
