Welcome to Pauline Loven’s costume blog.
Pauline Loven is a costume historian, costumier and heritage film producer. She has 30 years of experience in period costume-making and 10 years of experience in design and making of costumes for film. Recreating period clothing is a labour of love; each outfit can take many weeks to recreate and needs to take into account the unforgiving eye of the High Definition camera at all times! Pauline is also a published historian and illustrator, a former university lecturer and a member of The Costume Society.
Pauline creates costume for, and runs the wardrobe department of, Crow’s Eye Productions.
Crow’s Eye Productions is an independent film company established by Nick Loven, a film-maker who brings a unique eye to his work, from documentary and wildlife films to period dramas and music videos. Nick has 15 years’ experience in historical dramas, museum and instructional films, advertising and wildlife film and photography. Nick has worked with the BBC Natural History Unit and on Springwatch and is a member of the Museums Association.
Originality and high production values are the hallmark of Crow’s Eye Productions’ output. A video recently made by Crow’s Eye for a museum in Liverpool, ‘Getting Dressed in the 18th Century’, has gone viral with over 15 million views and counting!
