Ninya Mikhaila

Ninya Mikhaila, professional historical costumier and co-author of The Tudor Tailor, designs and makes high quality reproduction costumes that help to bring history to life. Working to the individual needs of heritage sites, museums, stately homes and private clients, complete costumes include beautifully made underpinnings, accessories and headgear. All of the costumes are handmade to the highest standards: no visible machine stitching, all natural materials and meticulous research are all fundamental to Ninya’s service. Fastenings and trimmings are all recreated to be as close to the originals as possible.

Ninya's clients include The Royal Armouries, Historic Royal Palaces, The National Trust, English Heritage, The Public Records Office and Gainsborough’s House, and this month Your Wardrobe Unlock’d was lucky enough to track her down in Edinburgh…
