I am a costumer and custom clothier based and working in southeastern PA. I have been the Costumes Cutter/Draper at People's Light in Malvern, PA, since 2014.
In theatrical costuming, I endeavor to balance look and functionality in the clothing I create or alter. To that end, I work closely with costume designers to understand their vision for the overall look of the show. I also listen to the performers, directors, and stage management to ensure that all clothes allow freedom of movement and are not disruptive to the storytelling.
In real-life custom clothing and alterations, I believe clothes should fit the person, not the other way around. I will always endeavor to enhance all the best aspects of an individual’s natural look and shape. I love potential, and I am driven by the moment my client sees that potential in the mirror.
