LEONIE GRACE initially trained in couture and then for 15 years honed her skills in fashion as a patternmaker. Her love for her craft and her commitment to excellence led her to the art of costume making. She has had a successful career in the costume industry since 2005.
Leonie Grace Costume was established at The Canal Road Film Centre in Leichhardt, NSW in 2008. In December 2015 Leonie moved to a larger facility in St Peters, NSW and launched Sydney Costume Workshop.
Leonie’s vision is to service the many and varied needs of the costume industry, be they in film, television, theatre, arena events, the corporate world or by creating one-off couture designs for an individual client.
The combination of her years of experience in both the fashion and costume environment have established in her an innate capacity to interpret a designer’s vision whilst still understanding the restraints of staying within budget.
Leonie has been featured in Business Review Weekly (BRW). Her desire to produce works of distinction has helped Leonie turn her passion into a viable business.
Leonie has been nominated for an APDG award (Australian Production Design Guild).
