I was a freelance costumier in my twenties, working for dance companies; The Place, Arc, The Cholmondeleys. For theatre; Bush, R.S.C. National Theatre, E.N.O. Edinburgh Festival, Academy Costumes. And on film productions, ‘The Last Emperor of China’, ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit.’

I have also taken on several bonfire costume commissions and do work for a London Based Prop company.


Appliquéd monster cushions made as part of a range of items for shopping complex company photoshoot.

“Nina’s costume work on our touring show ‘Miki’ was detailed and finished to a high standard. She delivered the work on time, on budget and was a pleasure to work with.”
