“Little works of art ..” Darcey Bussell

Now available through the Kennedy Center, Washington DC


Vin Burnham is the founder of The Little Costume Shop, a collection of exquisite hand made costume miniatures that are commissioned online and at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, which is where Vin started her career in costume design in the Fonteyn and Nureyev era.

Following a glittering film & TV career in the UK and Hollywood, Vin decided to go back to her roots in opera and ballet and she launched The Little Costume Shop in 2009. The exquisite quarter scale costumes are sold in both limited editions and special bespoke single pieces, which incorporate vintage textiles, silks, hand dyed tulle, hand painting, lace, 1920’s sequins and Swarovski crystals.

The latest addition is Little Costume Shop Weddings which offers your very own wedding dress made to perfection in quarter scale, which can easily be displayed in the home to commemorate the most important day of your life.

“Men love to buy these pieces for their wives & girlfriends; they make the ultimate romantic gifts for wedding and anniversary presents, and women buy them because they evoke such strong emotional memories”. VB.

Starting at just over £1,000, the current collection is exhibited in the Royal Opera House and Kennedy Center front of house showcases.

 “I enjoy my beautiful little costumes every day! Little treasures! Can’t wait to add to my collection”. BW. Patron of the Royal Ballet

 “These are stunning, beautifully made scale models. You can see the skill and love and remarkable attention to detail that has gone into each and every stitch, breathtaking and unique work”. J.A. 3 x Oscar winning costume designer.
