Archive_costume_2017cDuggan_001I am Caroline Hamilton and I’m an Australian-born historian and writer specialising in early twentieth century dance and costume. I trained as a costume maker for ballet in Canada and hold a Master’s in Word History and Cultures from King’s College London.

I am currently living in Western Massachusetts where I am undertaking a research fellowship into the costumes of Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn – at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in conjunction with Williams College Museum of Art.

Normally I live in the UK between a Tudor cottage in rural Cheshire and a pink Shepherd’s hut in Battersea with my cat Iris Apfel!
