Historical and Vintage Costuming

With a great interest in history I enjoy researching and learning about techniques used and styles worn, and the social or political change that accompanied them. My curiosity starts from ancient through to modern civilisations, and I take part in living history events where possible. I have also had the opportunity to teach historical costuming at events and at Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School.
