Alice Pocock is a student currently in her third year studying Costume Production at Rose Bruford College in Sidcup, just outside London. Although a London born girl at heart Alice lived in Singapore and Malaysia for the first few years of her life, though she was educated and grew up in Berkshire. She developed a love of clothing, fashion and costumes from an early age but this was to evolve more towards a love of the arts throughout her later school years. She gained A grades in Art, Music, English Literature and Drama wherein she chose to specialise in Costume Production. From this starting point she decided to continue studying Costume Production at degree level, and after taking a year out to work and then teach English in China she began her degree at Rose Bruford College in 2010.

Alice is now in her third and final year of her degree after attaining a grade of a high 2:1 during her second year of study. During this year she will be writing a dissertation on Religious Garments and making her end of year elective project, a dress and chain mail sleeve she has designed. She will also be undertaking two show roles, one as a maker and dresser and the other as a supervisor. Alongside this, Alice is working with Lazarus theatre company to design and source costumes for their production of ‘The Hatpin’.

Alice has worked with prestigious companies including The Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne Opera House, The Birmingham Royal Ballet, The English National Ballet, The British Youth Film Association and on the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony in either a dressing or work room role.
