I was over the moon to be given the opportunity by V&A Dundee to train as one of their costume mounters, under the renown expert conservator, textile and costume display expert Gesa Werner... known for, amongst many others, the McQueen and Dior shows at V&A London.

This was followed by eleven weeks of hard work mounting  'Tartan'. Then I designed my own  macro tartan print, and made it into a shift dress, which I wore to the grand opening.

Check out the slide show below for a rare peek into the world of costume mounting.
