The Cosmo Project was a Pilot Study, done at AUB, where a study was performed that related to a costume fitting between a professional director and actor, along with a team of students who took the parts of Assistant Costume Designer, Costume Supervisor and two Costume Makers.


The goal of the costume team was to realise a costume, designed by Professor Pamela Howard, for a character called ‘Lady in Hat 2’ in the production Ballad of the Cosmo Café. My part in the project was Assistant Costume Designer, and together with the Costume Supervisor, we sourced items for the costume and then the Costume Makers changed them, so they would fit better for Pamela’s designs. An important factor of the costume was an Ascher scarf the character wore, but as we could not find an original Ascher scarf to use, I got the task to create a replica of it, which we then printed digitally.
