"This costume for Rapunzel has been inspired by the original Brothers Grimm fairytale and the German Dirndl."

Images of Work

"Pleating on the apron largely contributes to the success of my project. Using a rich emerald green 100% silk satin, the light illuminates parts of the apron providing depth to the design. The pleating has symmetry to add to the overall aesthetic appeal."

"Block printing can be seen on the centre bodice and lower apron. Using my own design that was inspired by Germany’s national flower - the cornflower, I laser cut a printing block and hand printed the design onto purple silk fabric."
