POP! by Yinka Shonibare


I am a costume maker with a passion for making beautiful clothes. I build costumes with the assistance of a small team of skilled makers for Film, TV, Theatre, Opera & most recently the artist Yinka Shonibare. Many of my projects are collaborative, working with dyers, printers, embroiderers, beaders, flower makers and a laser cutting Co.

Past Work:


The Mummy Returns- Making for Rachel Weisz

Stardust- Making for Michelle Pfeiffer

Golden Compass-Making for Eva Green

Effie- Making for Emma Thompson


HBO Hemingway & Gellhorn - Making for Nicole Kidman

BBC Downton Abbey- Making for Maggie Smith


POP! Yinka Shonibare exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery -

Making of the ladies and the Champagne Kids


I work from designs, references or even a concept of a designer. I carry out all the necessary period research to achieve the most authentic look. Costumes will be fitted to the artist and then finished to a very high standard. Tight deadlines are not a problem, though an adequate time scale is always welcome.

I have been a freelance costume maker for 18 years. I was formerly a cutter at Glyndebourne Opera. I have remained a small operation, as I feel I can offer a couture finish with my little, but magnificently skilled team. I began with West End Theatre shows and drifted into other spheres like Film, TV & Art. All through recommendation. Each new creative field has taught me new skills and been a fun and exciting learning journey.
