The job of costume designers is to create an experience that will make you feel special, said Julie Cawley, who has designed over 100 costumes.
She has been working with the Costume Institute of the Canadian Costume Institute for several years.
“They’ve been so supportive and so wonderful,” she said.
“There’s a whole community of people who come and experience it.”
The institute has also helped Cawler with a range of other projects, including designing costumes for the Toronto International Film Festival.
She said the institute has even offered to work with costume makers to help them create their own costumes.
“We want to help people who are trying to find their voice in the costume industry,” she explained.
“And we have a great opportunity to do that.”
One of the main ways she has helped people get started is by providing her services at a monthly costume shop that specializes in high-end, high-fashion, and high-concept costume work.
“The shop has really helped me get my feet wet and to understand how the industry is working and what is being done,” she recalled.
I’m also involved in some really important community initiatives, such as the Costume Education Centre at the Royal Ontario Museum. “
But it’s not just about my work.
I also have a lot of interest in working with other people to see if they can do something similar.” “
I’ve worked with them a lot, and I’ve learnt a lot about the craft and what’s involved.
I also have a lot of interest in working with other people to see if they can do something similar.”
For Cawner, that interest is evident in the work she is currently working on for the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Cawling’s costume is a replica of a vintage B-17 bomber.
The B-27 bomber was designed to carry a crew of up to 70 people and was used for both combat and reconnaissance missions.
It was also a prototype fighter plane, used by the US Air Force during the Vietnam War.
The costume will be part of a military exhibition in November.
It will be at the Museum of Flight in Ottawa.
“My dream is that I will have my work displayed in the exhibit and have it become part of the history of the museum,” she told CBC News.
“That’s my dream.”
It will take some time to put the design together, but Cawney hopes it will eventually be ready for display.
“It’s really a collaboration between the museum and the costume maker, who is really the artist and the artist is me,” she noted.
“This is not just an exercise in my work, but a project in which I want to share my art.”
