Rosie Whiting I

Paying homage to Caryl Churchill's play Top Girls, a play in which the audience dine alongside Louise Bourgeois, Nina Simone, Emmeline Pankhurst, Mata Hari, Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart, Conchita Cintron, Martha Graham and host Marlene. Performance Costume graduate; Rosie Whiting has created  'Louise and Nina' two wonderfully complex rich costumes full of texture and technique. The 'Louise Bourgeois' costume (above) is resplendent with many hands all seeming to caress and protect the wearer especially the headpiece where hands gently cup the hair. The sassy 'Nina Simone' costume (below) has a bold knit bodice and fishnet crochet overlay of satin trousers.
