At our meeting in October we had Katie Duxbury talking about her “Costume Making Story”
She had a fascinating story to tell of how starting out with a degree in Theatre Design her first job took her into costume making for pantomime. This proved to be quite a challenge, but from here she eventually designed her own collection which obviously looks very “theatrical”. In fact her work was featured in Creative with Workbox edition 148 March/April 2015. As she considers her pieces to be wearable art it was not surprising that her latest venture is called the Thousand Mile Dress. Her aim is to work a 1000 miles across the countryside in different weather conditions and see how it stands up and to raise money in aid of refugees! Apparently she has already walked many miles in it and we wish her luck achieving her goal. Please feel free to donate.
