Costume Designing for Ella

If you would have told me that I would have been a costume designer at some point, I wouldn’t have believed you. The project was a fourth year degree film called Surface Noise by Ella Rose Howlett. It is about a girl getting attacked and suffering from PTSD. I was only meant to be a…

Mary Quant

This is another exhibition that I am very late to write about, but again, I can’t not talk about this designer.
