The Costumes of Macbeth

So much work goes into putting on any production.  I was only involved in Macbeth for the past few weeks and it took over my life.  For the production team who have been involved since the inception of this project I imagine it’s taken up a huge part of this year.

The show was visually beautiful with a stark, clean aesthetic. I worked with a team of sewers, lead by costume designer Sara Ben-Abdallah, and made some of the garments she created.

The pleats, that I spent quite a bit of time stressing over, looked great in the final pieces.

    There still needs to be a way to distinguish between sewers (those who sew) and sewers (those who convey sewage). But it would spoil all the fun 🙂
