Lately I have been working nights and weekends with a bespoke Hobbit outfit for one of our Swedish celebrities, Ann Westin. The costume is medieval/fantasy and consists of trousers, shirt, waistcoat and a coat. I absolutely adore this type of assignments since it suits my expertise in historical clothing. The patterns are based upon historical patterns I made but I have worked with them to bring them out of its context and bring them into a new period-less context. I have also used materials suitable for this sort of outfit, wool, cord and linen; and amazing carefully sourced buttons. Remember, details is everything!
The photo shoot is for the poster for her new show and the costume will also be worn during her tour. Robert Eldrim at Medljus Stockholm took lovely photos of her today and to summarise the day it was a success.
