Meet Our Costume Designer

Anna West has been sewing since she was 8-years old. As a child, dressing up

was always her favorite thing to do, and she has turned that into her art. Anna

designs and sews costumes, dresses, outfits, accessories, as well as

alterations. She also styles wigs, draws, paints, sings, plays the piano, ukulele,

and kalimba. Anna has acted on stage in various theatrical productions for over

a decade. Anna joined the Empire team in July 2023 and is loving living out  her dream.
