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.Β  In her final year, Ruby has explored the design process with a study in fantastical womenswear.

I absolutely love working backstage. It was something I had never done before arriving at BOVTS and I'm so grateful for the opportunity. Madi Barncoat, BA Costume Student
