About Paris

Paris Burrows is a multidisciplinary designer working across fashion, screen and live performance. Her fearless attitude and belief in making purposeful work drivesher to challenge the traditions of art making in time based mediums and the conventions of dress and tailoring in fashion. Paris’s work stand out as experimental, futuristic and dramatic with avant-guard tastes and a refined gothic sensibility. During her time at Nida, she has credits as Costume Designer for Sandaime Richard directed by Ong Keng Sen, Production/Costume Designer for Music Video for Oshua’s Veins, directed by Rebecca MacNamee and Set Designer for The Writer directed by Zoe Hollyoak.
