COSTUME DESIGNER

DESIGN PROCESS.

For this conceptual piece, the design is based on "Suite Bergamasque, L. 75: III. Claire de Lune." I was inspired by Disney's "The Little Mermaid," and wanted to create costumes for each of the individual sisters. Theoretically, this dance piece is a ballet. The time period is the 1830s (19th c.). I used period costume silhouettes and aplique/trim, but adapted the costume for movement.

My main inspiration for the style of costume was the House of Karinska. Karinska was known as a "genius sculptor of soft fabric" and she "rose to the top of her field, making and designing dance costumes that combined form, function and artistry to create ballet's line of couture."
