Talented 18-year-old designs and sews dresses that look straight out of a fairytale


Do you remember what you were doing when you were 18 years old? I sure do, and let me tell you, it’s nowhere near as incredible as this young girl.

Meet Angela Clayton. She’s an 18 year old costume designer that lives in Long Island, New York. She’s recently received a substantial amount of publicity for her original dress designs. Trust me, they are simple incredible.

Angela says,

“I hope that there is a future career that I will get out of it. I love making costumes and I love bringing ideas to life. If I could do that for fashion, especially for theater or film, that would be awesome…I would rather go straight into that if I can instead of spending four years at school.”

Take at look at her dress designs below. f you want to see more of Angela’s work, check out her page here.

Angela was only 14 years old when she started sewing.


“The first thing I really finished was a school uniform from an anime show when I was 14. It took me about two months.”


“I was into cosplay, making costumes or wearing costumes to conventions, and I couldn’t afford the costumes that were available online.”


“I was like, ‘Oh, I’ll make mine! That will be great and easy!’ It really wasn’t but I really enjoyed it.”


“I have one that I’ve been working on since January and I’m still not done with it, but I hopefully will be finishing it soon”


“I continued making the costumes because I enjoyed the sewing aspect of it”


“I decided to just give myself more freedom for focusing on historical projects and original design”


“If you practice, you can definitely do it. It might take you a while”


“It comes naturally to some people but it is definitely something you can learn how to do”


“I really enjoy doing it. I love making costumes and I love bringing ideas to life”
