What would you do to survive?

Alexandria has spent 18 years of her life in hiding. She’s good at it. With The Hounds scouring every village for anyone practicing witchcraft, Alexandria has to keep her magic hidden, even from her younger brother Ollie. That all changes when they find her.

Desperation. Luck. Magic. Alexandria will do anything in her power to save herself and the only family she has left. But how far will she go?

This costume was designed for the subject Costume Construction in my second year of Bachelor of Fine Arts (Design and Production) at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). Only the stay and multi-layered skirt and apron were constructed.
