NIDA students in costume at the Barracks & The Mint

 

NIDA costume design students, in the very costumes that they designed, were photographed in Court 24 at the Hyde Park Barracks last Monday 6 August.

Passers-by may have noticed them on Friday at the front of The Mint in their period costume on a second photo shoot.

We have an ongoing relationship with NIDA costume design who last year designed these costumes in a project that resulted in a floor display in the Silhouettes Gallery.

Costumes made and modelled by NIDA Costume students at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum and at The Mint. Photos courtesy NIDA Costume.
