Now the making begins! It was incredibly difficult selecting which costumes to make but these are my winners…. and I now have 3 out of 4 models confirmed too!
In the performance my lovely models will be playing out a sort of love triangle between Gaston, Amaranta Ursula, and Aureliano. She enters the stage in a different costume and is slowly stripped down to her black underneath layers by Aureliano as he seduces her through dance…. well thats the general idea, I will need the help of these wonderfully talented performers to turn it into reality!
Poor Rebeca will be dancing alone… in her stoic widowhood.
The finished costumes will be modelled in the Edinburgh College of Art Fashion and Costume show in May, and then on display as part of the degree show in June.
