TheatreThe Royal Opera House
Carrie is supporting her costume design work with a BA degree in Costume Construction with South Essex College, the University of the Arts and the Royal Opera House. She trains alongside professionals from one of the most prestigious theatres in the world. First year work has focused on technical construction in the areas of Victorian underwear - chemises, corsets, bustles and bum pads; the construction of an 1840s dairy maid costume and a new design aesthetic for Madame Butterfly. Carrie's work was on exhibition during the summer of 2017 at The Beecroft Art Gallery in Southend.
In September 2016 Carrie designed and constructed a costume for a Royal Ballet dancer for editorial and press publications.
