Join us in celebrating the work of graduating students from the Costume with Textiles BA(Hons) at The University of Huddersfield.


From the Vampire Chronicles to the Borrowers, Cinder to the Looking Glass Wars this is an exhibition with a difference as costume creations from the world of fiction come to life before your eyes.


The creative vision of our students from sketch to stage will introduce you to an eclectic cast of characters that surprise, delight and enchant.


Each designer has reconceptualised an individually selected text and designed the cast of characters for a specific performance genre, situating their design practice within a dramatic and cultural context.


Alongside a portfolio of costume design work, two or three characters have benn fully realised blending experimental design, textiles and construction processes appropriate for the selected performance genre. With every short performance choreographed to communicate the intended vision of the costume designer, these personal adaptations highlight the centrality of the costumed body to storytelling in performance.
