Featured here is a rendering of Clara Johnson in her costume during Act 1 scene 1 & 2. She is wearing a floral cotton dress, that has a pleated skirt. She also has a straw hat on, that is an integral part of the story, as the wind takes it off her head, and blows into the hands of Fabrizio, the man she falls in love with. 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.
