Design Assistant

 

The Critic 


Shakespeare Theatre Company
Designer: Murell Horton

 

Produced with The Real Inspector Hound, was responsible for renting and pulling the men’s 1770’s looks and all period shoes.  Shopped for all accessories and period undergarments. For the play within a play, most garments had to be rigged for either a 30 second change or an onstage reveal, I worked with the designer to develop a series of closures and magnets that could be repeated successfully over the course of the run.

 

The Real Inspector Hound


Shakespeare Theatre Company
Designer: Murell Horton

 


The challenge of this production was found in the world of the play- two characters in the 1960's watching a play take place in the 1930's. The designer wanted a 30's look with a 60's feel. I was responsible for pulling and renting the mens looks, and purchasing accesories, shoes and undergarments for the ladies.

 

Salomé


Shakespeare Theatre Company
Designer: Susan Hilferty

 

Devised work based on the biblical story of Salomé with script developed in the rehearsal space and throughout tech. International cast-some non-English speakers-was responsible for working directly with the actors during fittings and in the rehearsal room to collaborate on their characters costume needs. Items purchased nationally and internationally, responsible for coordinating shipping and arrival times.The designer arrived with a loose idea of what the costumes were going to look like, but through the fitting process and collaboration with the actors, we let the story shape the look of the final costumes.

The Metromaniacs


Shakespeare Theatre Company
Designer: Murell Horton

 

Most looks involved very detailed fabric modification, I worked with the drapers and the designer to determine layout and placement of embroidery and screen printing. This involved creating paper stand-ins of the embroidery pattern in order to move it about the garment during fittings to determine best placement. Additionally, all shoes were custom made. I was responsible for communicating with the shoemaker regarding the specific needs of the design, as well as the needs of the actor.
