My first work was a full time job on designing and making costumes for a theatrical play, an interpretation of the well known story Hedda Gabler by Henric Ibsen, called 'Hedda Gabler - The Game' by Akis Sideris and Dramacholics (2012).
Thereafter I have worked on the field of costume designing and styling with director Joyce Nashawati, producer Darion Lowenstein, director Lexi Kiddo, music composer William Carslake, director Gilbert Bannerman, director David Ledger and director Jim Manganello.
On 2016 I gained my BA (Hons) Performance Design and Practice degree at Central Saint Martins. Before studying this course I gained a foundation diploma on PDP at the same university, and my international baccalaureate diploma at the Moraitis School of Athens. I have attend drawing classes in Greece at 'School of Fine Arts Plakas' and portfolio making at 'Eirini' and 'Pinakothiki'. So far I have worked with a few employers and gained experience on a wide range of skills.
