Jemima is a costume designer for stage and screen. She has a BA in Fashion Design from the University of Brighton and a Masters in Sustainability and Fashion from the London College of Fashion.

Jemima began her career assisting fashion stylist Victoria Bartlett and design collective Three As Four in New York. She worked on shoots for magazines including Vogue, ID, and Dazed, and assisted Victoria in setting up her label VPL. On returning to London she started working with several production companies styling music promos. Jemima has designed costumes and looks for wide range of bands, artists and celebrities, and in 2006 worked on her first major theatre production, 'Coram Boy' at the Royal National Theatre, designed by Ty Green and Melly Still.

Since then she has regularly taken on theatre work as well as screen. She is an associate costume designer for Lightmap productions, collaborating with director Netia Jones on projects such as Where the Wild things are for the LA Philharmonic Association, and Curlew River for the Barbican. Her work as a costume supervisor includes productions of Edward II at the National Theatre and she is a long-standing Associate Costume Supervisor for 'Mamma Mia!' the musical, where she has overseen new productions in Seoul, Cape Town, Shanghai and across Europe.

In 2010 Jemima completed an MA in Fashion and the Environment. She undertook the MA in order to broaden her knowledge and because of her interest in the ethics and sustainability of design, resulting in an investigation into how her work in the media can also support sustainability values. She has worked with Helen Storey, Unilever, and the Ethical Fashion Forum, on projects in this area. Jemima styled the Iconic designers section of the 2008 RE:Fashion Awards and more recently exhibited at London’s Southbank Centre where her work featured in a showcase on the cultural response to climate change in January 2010, curated by Cape Farewell.

Jemima's work in film includes 'Minimus' by director Johnny Hopkins, winner of best short film at the Chicago comedy film festival 2013 and 'In the Dark half', starring Lyndsey Marshal, Tony Curran and Jessica Barden. Directed by Alastair Siddons and produced by Southwest Films, it was shortlisted for Raindance Festival 2011.

For her portfolio Jemima chose our Loden theme which gave her the opportunity to present her stills and video work in a large format, allowing the detail and execution in her craft to shine through.

Fabrik for Designers

  • Cropping

    Fabrik provides a number of cropping options to give you control over how your imagery is presented on your site. We believe in letting you decide how our themes work with your images for the best result. Of course, cropping is optional for those of you who prefer to present every glorious detail of your work.

  • Layouts

    Within each theme choose from a variety of layouts to fine-tune how your content is presented. From grids of small, medium or large thumbnails to stacks, magazine layouts, gallery slideshows and fullscreen options - find the perfect fit yourself. And the best news of all; you can change layouts from page to page too, so if one project looks better in one layout then go with it.

  • Fully Hosted

    The days of dealing with your own hosting are well and truly over. Fabrik’s hosting environment is properly next-level. Let us spend our time thinking about things like load-balancing, geo-locational efficiency, site-caching and scaling infrastructure. We have people here that enjoy that sort of thing, you just get on with making great work.
