Pains of Youth
“Pains of Youth” was our realised production during my final year at Toi Whakaari. We worked with Kathryn Jarvis, a student of the design department, to realise her vision of the classic post war play by Ferdinand Bruckner.
I was responsible for creating one of the costumes for Lucy, a maid who gets sucked into the games and schemes of the rich and bored. This is her outfit after she is bullied into working the streets.
Silk satin dress with chevron sequin and bead trim. Devouré kimono with handmade and handapplied silk organza flowers, the petals were custom dyed to match the characters shoes.
