Stevie Stewart – formerly one half of the innovative and influential fashion design label Bodymap – now works with top creative names in fashion, music, film and advertising as a costume, set and production designer and a fashion stylist.
She began collaborating with Michael Clark in 1984, creating memorable costumes for many of his productions. Other theatrical collaborations include costume design for Jan Willhem Van Den Bosch's Mother Courage and her Children for Graeae Theatre Company and costume design for The Importance of Being Earnest directed by David Fielding at The Bristol Old Vic.
Film credits include production designer and costume designer for Ruby Blue directed by Jan Dunn featuring Bob Hoskins and Josiane Balasko; costume designer for Baillie Walsh's Flashbacks of a Fool starring Daniel Craig; and costume and production designer for Jan Dunn's The Calling.
Stevie has also designed costumes for several international music tours including Kylie Minogue's recent KYLIEX2008 world tour and previous Showgirl and Homecoming international tours, as well as The Circus Starring Britney Spears 2009 Tour.
She is collaborating with William Baker to design and produce a men's swimwear and underwear line – B Boy, and also designs and consults for leading Italian fashion houses. 'Fashion lives for its moments of genius and this season, that moment is the reviving of the revolutionary style of Bodymap. In the early Eighties, Bodymap's stretch-jersey-body-contouring layers, designed by Stevie Stewart and David Holah, helped turn British fashion on its head. This spring, labels as diverse as Cacherel and Louis Vuitton are nodding to the Bodymap style with cutouts and stretchy stripes. 'We are rebelling against the conservative, the bland' 'We are striving for excitement', says Stewart. That quest has lived on: she has forged a fertile career consulting, directed adverts and designing sets. 'so the time is ripe to reissue some designs' . (Vogue UK, March 2003).
