Costume Design

Elizabeth has designed costumes for New Zealand Opera, Auckland Theatre Company, Silo, Court Theatre, Red Leap and Okareka Dance, Black Grace, Douglas Wright Dance, Michael Parmenter, Atimira, Shona McCullagh, Royal New Zealand Ballet, Pop-Up Theatre London for the Edinburgh Festival, and The World of Wearable Art core show in Wellington for six years.

In 2010, she won the Chapman Tripp Costume Design Award for The Arrival (Red Leap). She represented New Zealand at the Prague Design Quadrennial in 2003 with her costumes for Falstaff, and again in 2007 with a team of designers who created the exhibition Blow. Her designs for Marriage of Figaro have just been presented in Seattle, and her costume designs for Tosca in Perth had a great reception.

Recently, Elizabeth has designed Uncle Vanya (Court Theatre), Kororareka (Red Leap), and Kiss the Sky (New Zealand Dance Company). Her costume designs have been seen in the successfully remounted productions of Hudson and Halls Live and The Mooncake and the Kumara. Later this year, Elizabeth will be working on the costume designs for Blonde Poison and Dominion Road the Musical.
