September 2022 update

In 2021 Ninya Mikhaila worked with costume designer Rhona Russell to create the clothing worn by Harry Lloyd as Richard III for the movie ‘The Lost King’. The film, directed by Stephen Frears and written by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope, tells the story of the 2012 discovery of King Richard III's remains beneath a Leicester car park. The film is set in 2012 but King Richard appears throughout in late 15th century clothing, including full armour (made by Fred Ryall of Ryall armouries) for which Ninya made an arming doublet and a hand embroidered surcoat. The film is released in cinemas on 7 October 2022. Watch the trailer here. Ninya will be giving talks on the research and making process for the film – see the events page
