MA Costume Design for Performance alumna Lara Jensen has designed the headpieces for Kylie Minogue and her dancers at the closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games.

Lara attended the MA course after the then course leader Donatella Barbieri (now Senior Research Fellow in Design for Performance, jointly at the V&A Museum and LCF) spotted her drawings when she came to LCF to meet a friend, and as a Harold Tillman scholar she was the first ever MA Costume student to gain a scholarship in the history of the course. She designed and made her first showgirl outfit as part of her film project, and went on to get early work experience with wigmaker Charlie Mindu, which confirmed her interest in millinery.

Since graduating in 2009, she has created work for Lady Gaga, Karl Lagerfeld, Jessie J and London Fashion Week, as well as being included Leanne Wierzba’s Head On exhibition at Fashion Space Gallery.
