The shawl around her waist is made from fine 'turban' cotton, printed with tiny sprigs, bordered with a hand knotted fringe of multi coloured strands.Her shoulder wrap is gossamer fine silk, printed with a subtle gold motif. It is fringed with ombreed shreds and an edging of contemporary and 1920's gelatine sequins. The costume has been 'broken down' to look lived in.

Each costume Ms Burnham creates is hand made to order. You can expect it will take between 4 and 6 weeks for your costume to be completed. Occasionally a long production time it required; we will notify you should such a delay occur.
This costume is hand made and no two costumes will be identical. Please note that no additional discounts will be applied.
Ms Burnham started her career in London at Covent Garden in the Fonteyn and Nureyev era, making costumes and props for designers Nicholas Georgiadis, Yolanda Sonnabend, David Walker, Julia Trevelyan Oman, Maria Bjornson, Barry Kay, and Sally Jacobs.
She is now an international award winning costume designer working mainly in film and television.
