FIFA CWC Opening Ceremony

Costume

Brief: To make 18 large silk carnival wings and 72 matching skirts celebrating the 6 national finalists of the tournament.

Event: FIFA Club World Cup Opening ceremony, Abu Dhabi 2009

Role: Artist/Maker as part of a large team.

Client:  Kinetika Design Studio

I was part of the team that made these wonderful costumes, and since then I’ve looked after all the repairs and been wardrobe support when they are on hire.

All the skirts and headdresses pack flat for transport and the large wings have removable, collapsible rods for the same reason.  All designs are by Ali Pretty.

These costumes are available for hire through Kinetika.
