Sydney Costume Workshop is a multi-purpose facility fully equipped to service the many and varied needs of the costume industry. Theatrical productions, Films, Television, the Corporate World and Individual Performers are amongst its clientele.
With the capacity to house making for large theatre shows or films, there are also temporary work spaces available for casual rental by individual costume makers or smaller creative projects.
The current owner Leonie Grace initially trained in couture and then for 15 years honed her skills in fashion as a patternmaker. The love of her craft and her passion for excellence naturally led her to then pursue the art of Costume Making. Leonie has had a successful career in the costume industry since 2005.
The combination of her years of experience in both the fashion and costume environment have established in her an innate capacity to interpret a designer’s vision whilst still understanding the restraints of working within a budget.
The combination of form, function, beauty and business lie at the heart of her work. Her team of expert cutters and stitchers have been carefully selected because of their passion for the same.
Together they are Sydney Costume Workshop and welcome any new projects be they small or large.
