Ruby Nex

FdA Costume Student


Ruby began her three-year journey at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School with a passion for corsetry, and has since developed her making skills to include an advanced understanding of tailoring, stretchwear, millinery, metalwork and leatherwork.

She has also successfully adapted to the role of costume supervisor, working with both contemporary and period themes.  In her final year, Ruby has explored the design process with a study in fantastical womenswear.

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
