This coming March will see the English National Ballet present Beyond Ballets Russes - a celebration of the legacy of Diaghilev's legendary company. A new production inspired by Stravinsky's Firebird will feature choreography by George Williamson with costume designs by David Bamber. I've been commissioned to design and make headpieces and costume accessories for several of the characters.
