NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We also wish to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across this country's sacred homelands, and in particular, students and other First Nations members of the NIDA community.

Stephany Eland

Stephany Ever since she was young Stephany has been fascinated by the way that clothes can tell a story about who their wearer is and how they fit into the world around them. This fascination led her
to develop a deep interest in historical dress and to undertake an Advanced Diploma in Applied Fashion Design and Technology at TAFE Queensland East Coast.

Whilst at NIDA Stephany’s passion for historical garments and techniques continued and in her third year, culminated with an in-depth study into the history and practice of bobbin lace making.

Stephany enjoys the opportunity that working in costume provides to be able to help shape that story for the characters of the stage and screen. After graduation she hopes to work in film and television, both on set in standby roles and off set, creating costumes in the workroom, whilst also continuing  to research and learn more about historical costuming practices in her own time.
