Focusing on the practitioner’s working process, Kjellmer looks into how Ström both understood and made use of the visual impact of fashion illustrations and the latest modern dress codes in his sketches for A Dream Play. Costume is still an underrepresented perspective within both visual studies and theatre and performance studies, so this study marks the importance of transdisciplinary work in relation to the scenographic archive.
