Costume Manager, IF: Industrial Fashion
Kaye Smith started her working life as a hairdresser and later, in the hey-day of advertising in South Melbourne, moved into graphic design. She is a maker who has worked across a wide range of media, from cold glass to textiles, interior design to building and construction, print management to people management and backstage hair and makeup to onstage performance. Her multi-faceted creativity was sparked by an early interest in fabric and garment construction stimulated by her seamstress mother, who worked for one of Melbourne’s leading fashion designers in the city in the 1950s. Kaye's growing obsession with textiles has led her to be involved with the Festival for the second time.
