During her recent visit to Monaco to attend the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival, our adventuring company Director Carol Gandey also stopped by the Exhibition of Circus Costumes at the Princess Grace Theater. The exhibition featured the work of Roberto Rosello who is a renowned costume designer, decorator and set designer. From his detailed and intricate drawings on paper to the final garments and costumes, the exhibition is an exciting and interesting insight in to the world of a costume designer such as Roberto. Designing for shows such as 'Holiday on Ice' and numerous cabaret and circus performers, it is a rare opportunity to delve in to such an exciting world. Carol managed to snap some wonderful images on her phone which we thought share on the blog, the work on display is such an inspiration for anyone interested in theatre, fashion or illustration. Carol was also privileged to meet acclaimed artist Toby Wright (pictured below).
