Bride-to-be Ashleigh commissions Monica, a couture designer, to make the wedding dress of her dreams.
She is reassured by Monica’s promises that the process will celebrate Ashleigh and fill her with confidence, but Ashleigh’s outward assurance masks internal conflict and doubt. As the wedding approaches, both client and stylist are forced to face the complicated relationship they have with each other, body shape and social prejudice.
Drawing on interviews with designers, brides and health-based scientists, Alana Valentine’s Made to Measure gives voice to the body positive community while exploring the science behind the effect of weight on our health.
Tracy Mann, Megan Wilding and Sam O’Sullivan feature in a production directed by Tim Jones.
