Film costumier

2007 - present

Weta Workshop has been a huge part of my career for over a decade and I've had the incredible opportunity to work on some exciting and challenging film costumes as a supervisor, pattern cutter, fitter and stitcher/machinist.

Working as part of a creative team is my favorite aspect of creating film costumes.

Collaborating with other craftspeople and different departments has encouraged me to think laterally and problem solve under pressure.

Showgirl costumier

2005 - present


Although I began making costumes for dancers in the late 90's, it wasn't till 2005 that I began directing my focus toward burlesque performers and showgirls.

Since 2013 I have regularly been named among the top Burlesque Costumiers and Non-Performing Women in the annual international 20th Century Burlesque Top 50 list and have created costumes for some of the most well-known performers in the world.


Ballet & Theatrical costumier

1997 - present

Over the years I have worked for the Royal New Zealand Ballet and various NZ opera productions as a stitcher/sewing machinist for various productions including A Midsummer Night's Dream, Don Quixote, Cinderella and more.


Bikini designer

1997 - 2018

My career began at the age of 18, making bikinis and costumes for exotic dancers.  This early start gave me an excellent understanding of stretch fabrics, working with unusual designs and how to interact comfortably with clients.

From 2000 - 2007 I ran an internet-based niche bikini business, Sublime Bikinis, making custom bikinis for clients all over the world.
