MARA

Costume and Styling for Mara, The Seal Wife.


When creating the costume for Mara, The Seal Wife, I looked at stylised 80’s films and old photographs of locals from Uist and St Kilda.  Working with contemporary designers and fashion producers I was able to incorporate jewellery by Heather McDermott and Soizig Carey for the Lighthouse and wedding scenes, knitwear and jumper by Anika Höppel, scarf by Green Thomas for the Proposal scene, silk cotton pyjamas by LAS for Maggie and a customised denim shirt by Alice Dansey-Wright for when Sìne is painting in her studio. Mara, The Seal Wife is clothed with a mixture of locally sourced authentic pieces, borrowed family heirlooms, and unique contemporary details.
