The Copenhagen Collection: II

Amidst the world wide Covid 19 crisis, the shining light in the storm has been a commission from the DET NY TEATER in Copenhagen, Denmark for their upcoming stage production of Oliver!

We have been stitching furiously for the past few weeks creating the first set of costumes: Here are the lady’s garments:

This is our Brooks Dress made up in a bold Victorian Era print found in our reproduction cotton collection. This gown is based on an extant cotton American gown found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Hems are extra long and unfinished as they will finalized at fitting sessions in Denmark.

These gowns are finished at center back with a hidden zipper. Historical closures such as hook and eyes are too laborious for quick costume changes between acts.


About Susan

My interest in historical costume began at a very early age. I knew by age 5 I wanted to be a designer. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to turn my passion into a full time business. You can find my costumes onstage in NYC, on the big screen, and in museums around the globe.
