Howard Merlin, costume shop coordinator
What do you think about when deciding to get dressed?
One of the creative parts of my job is that I dye and paint the ballet slippers, so I can dress well for work but I also have to be aware that I’m painting every day.
Do you find the ballet has been an influence on your style?
As a former dancer, I’m always conscious of what I’m putting on and the fit of my clothing. It’s a key factor in my style.
