I´m working on the costumes for a show in Oslo, opening in a few weeks. It´s a NOT-old-fashioned version of a traditional Norwegian fairy-tale, originally titled “Sheparding the King´s rabbits”. The costumes will be slightly inspired by the props, which are also the set, namely a lot of old, used plastic pipes: Without revealing to […]
About a decade ago I designed a summer uniform for the local guide company. It was loosley based on a viking pattern. With a belt with the text from the nearby church.

I made this beautiful silk and sequin top a few years ago for a show. Unfortunately it was never used, and it´s been lying around unused waiting for the perfect owner and the occasion. I can totally see a summer bride wear this with a long, slim silk skirt. Or a big, fluffy tulle skirt. […]
