Personal profile

Research interests

My AHRC/Design Star funded PhD investigates the design and wholesale manufacturing of women’s fashionable blouses during the 1910s using network theories, object-focused research, and storytelling. I have a background as a costume maker in film and theatre and used these experiences to write two books that recreate everyday dress and accessories from museum collections: Making Edwardian Costumes for Women (2016) and Making Vintage 1920s Costumes for Women (2017). I have also published on tennis dress, and dress in museum collections.
