Costume Design/ Costumes made-to-measure

With over 15 years experience as a professional costumier, Rada studied fashion design, pattern-cutting and clothing construction at Wollongbar TAFE, in the beautiful surrounds of Northern NSW, Australia. Graduating with a distinction, she has worked extensively in the costume industry ever since, from costume design to pattern-making and construction, and costume standby/ dresser on feature films and in the theatre world. During the past 8 years in the UK she has focussed on designing Costumes made-to-measure, predominantly for circus artists/ acrobats, allowing her the freedom to work at home and train the circus skills she loves to perform.

She has worked on feature films, including ‘Fools Gold’ starring Kate Hudson, Matthew McConaughey and Donald Sutherland, and ‘The Condemned’ starring Steve ‘Stone Cold’ Austin and Vinnie Jones. She has worked in film, television, theatre, ballet, opera, and circus, and designed and created many costumes made-to-measure including dressing an 8-piece band for Shambala Festival main-stage 2010.

As a circus artist herself, she understands the amount of strain that a circus costume must go through during it’s performing life, and creates sturdy long- lasting costumes to withstand the pressures it will undergo. She has made costumes for many different acts and will tailor to individual needs. Her costumes are unique and creative, and she has an eye for detail.

For costume enquiries please email If you would like to book Miss Radida to perform at a themed event, she would happily theme her own performance in any style with a bespoke costume created especially.
