ABOUT ANGELA

ANGELA HALLAM trained as a Theatre Designer and Teacher of Art and Textiles.

HOW I WORK

I don't use fibre glass or any other rigid materials. My elephant costume for Coventry City Football Club can do headstands and all the costumes are so flexible and comfortable to wear that they can even run races!

All original design work undertaken, or I can work from existing designs. 'Good as New' cleaning and repair service always available.

They are more like soft sculptures to me than dressmaking. I put the same commitment and effort into the styling whatever the character or client. They are my children if you like, I like to retain contact and give a service which involves contact with the wearer and an effort to make it work for them comfort and characterwise.

The advantage of my set up is that you don't just talk to a salesperson, you talk to the salesperson / designer / maker all at once, so I can answer all questions, and be flexible with the solutions. I can say what can and can't be done straight away!!
