Costume design graduate shaken not stirred by her latest project
The recent graduate of The Northern School of Art’s BA (Hons) Costume Interpretation with Design degree was working as part of the team behind the staging of the custom-made live show created by Netherland’s based Plugged Live at one of Amsterdam’s oldest theatres, the Tuschinkski Theatre, before the film was shown to an invited VIP audience.
The costumes for the performers were designed by Monique Ebbs from The Makeover Factory who contacted Marloes to help with the construction of the stunning pieces.
Marloes explained: “Working alongside three others we sourced parts for the costumes and constructed the rest in-house ourselves. Some of the items that I helped with were shoulder pieces and masks that were covered in mirror-like shards. I also sewed wrap tops, and pearly cuffs. The costumes were very sparkly and detailed and they worked really well in the final performance.”
In 2015 Marloes set up in business as Moonrise Artistry which ‘focuses on bespoke costume design for the magical, ethereal and extraordinary’. Working with unconventional materials and refined techniques she developed during her time at The Northern School of Art, Moonrise Artistry now works with clients to ‘make fairytale dreams come true’.
