About the presenter:
Caitlin was first introduced to the world of historical fashion while completing an undergraduate program in history. Her time spent researching the social history of dress spurred her on to complete hands-on training in fashion and costume design in Sydney, Australia. Throughout her studies, her skills were developed interning backstage at runway shows, theatre productions, and fashion photoshoots. Nowadays, she combines her passion for history with her love of costume design through her tailoring business Delska Dressmaking. Caitlin keeps the traditional dressmaking practices of the past alive, teaching sewing workshops and creating bespoke garments for luxury clients from all across North America.
