Costume Designs

Kat enjoys all parts of the design process, from researching, to collaborating, to traditional and digital drawings, to purchasing, and building from scratch. Her designs are bold and larger than life, but always take into account the comfort and performance of the actors. Below you will find selected galleries of recent work.
