Ruby Nex

FdA Costume Student


Ruby began her three-year journey at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School with a passion for corsetry, and has since developed her making skills to include an advanced understanding of tailoring, stretchwear, millinery, metalwork and leatherwork.

She has also successfully adapted to the role of costume supervisor, working with both contemporary and period themes.Β  In her final year, Ruby has explored the design process with a study in fantastical womenswear.

Training at BOVTS set me up with the skillset, confidence and connections for the career I now have as a freelance theatre designer. Max Johns, MA Performance Design Alumni
