H.M.S Pinafore: Costume Sketches

New York-based Costume Designer Fabio Toblini combines a variety of historic and modern influences to complement the comic musical, H.M.S Pinafore. Toblini exaggerates proportions of the women’s dresses with revealing bust lines, cinched waistlines and oversized bustles. The classic sailor and British Navy uniforms have details drawing from different eras. Toblini drapes and layers fine fabrics to maximize movement and amusement in his dance costume designs.
