BA (Hons) Costume for Performance student Megan Doyle and BA (Hons) Hair, Make-up and Prosthetics for Performance student Stefanie Kemp, both had their work showcased at the Sir John Soane’s Museum annual fundraising party.
Second year students were invited to submit designs for the waiting staff uniforms, drawing inspiration from the museum’s unusual and extraordinary collection, as well as conveying the macabre and chilling mood of this year’s party theme: “The Gothick”.
The party took place in the museum, and the house appeared just as it did in Georgian times. Lit by candles, with fantastic themed drinks and canapés; there were an array of mystical and eerie entertainments throughout the night.
Megan Doyle’s costume design and Stefanie Kemp’s hair and make-up design were chosen as the winners of the competition, and their creations will adorned the twenty staff working at the event in November.
Megan worked with Sanya Torkmorad-Jozavi to make hundreds of sculptural paper and foil leaves as headdresses and epaulettes, while Stefanie realised her bold and haunting make-up look with a team of students including Molly Peters, Ciara Doyle, Stacie Smith, Grace Fisher, Aurora Beadle, Emma Sutcliffe, Kathryn Vose, Georgie Stevens and Abi Turner.
Congratulations to all students involved!
