Featured here is a rendering of Clara Johnson in her costume during Act 2 scene 5 & 6. She is wearing a silk peach dress, with a peach dotted swiss fabric on top. The dress features high neckline with a collar, with a sheer panel of the swiss dot in the décolletage area. While designing Clara’s costumes I aimed to keep them colorful and youthful, to show her light-hearted and free spirit. Most of her costumes complement her mother’s to show how her mother has a strong influence on her, however at this point in the play her costumes begin to contrast her mother’s, to show how she is stepping into her independence.
