Leah Giblin is a bespoke textile designer and costume artist. Her great interests have always been clothes-making, textiles and the environment. She began with a degree in Environmental Studies, while always sewing and making in her spare time. Her love of costume and historical fashion developed over time and eventually drew her to NIDA, where she completed a costume degree. She followed that with ten years in the film and television industry, working as a costume maker, stylist, costume designer and standby. During that time she also collaborated with visual artists Mikala Dwyer, Koji Ryui, Lauren Brincat, Agatha Gothe-Snape and Justene Williams.
