I am a wardrobe stylist and costume designer based in Toronto, Canada. I have been working in costuming for over 15 years and have worked on projects ranging from commercials and print campaigns, to music videos, feature films and theatre productions. Over the years, I have also worked in all capacities within wardrobe departments including dresser, set supervisor, buyer, assistant costume designer and costume designer.
I am a graduate of Ryerson University’s Fashion Marketing program. After my studies, I worked in Toronto as a wardrobe stylist for music videos and commercials, as well as working on several feature films. In 2005, I moved to London where I worked as a wardrobe stylist for commercials/ print and as a dresser/ wardrobe assistant in West End theatre. I have also worked extensively in the U.S., Czech Republic, Spain and South Africa. I returned to Toronto in 2012, where I am now based.
My professional experience includes both contemporary and period piece productions. Whilst in London, my period piece work included costume designing a Noel Coward play, “You Can’t Take It With You”, working as a dresser/ wardrobe assistant on “Phantom of the Opera” and “The Dutchess of Malfi”, a collaborative piece between acclaimed theatre group Punchdrunk and The English National Opera. Recently, I was the costume designer for two Canada Heritage Minutes, highlighting the careers of Prime Ministers Sir John A. MacDonald and George Etienne Cartier. My work includes numerous print and commercial shoots, working with award-winning commercial directors including Tim Godsall and Ivan Zaccherius.
Fashion and costume design continue to be my passion and I enjoy the entire process of creating costumes from concept development, to research, to design/ illustration, and construction.
I hold Canadian, U.S. and British Passports.
