Monday’s Child Costume Design

Woman’ and ‘Girl’ are the two characters in Monday’ Child. It was my job to come up with what they would be wearing.
 
It is important that the actors are comfortable and able to move and dance freely. I wanted to create simple shapes with plain block colours for the two characters. Some of the pictures shown here I used as reference on how to create a simple yet stylish design.

Below are my costume designs which I have painted with watercolour paint (scanning them in makes them a bit fainter than the paper versions). Once the designs are finished I need to make the ideas a reality. I have York Theatre Royal wardrobe department to help me buy or make the costumes ready for the actors to try them on.
