Every season is full of memorable fashion moments, courtesy of Costume Supervisor and Complex Studio Artist Monica Ennis. Ennis has worked extensively in costume in Ireland, and was Costume Supervisor with many companies including Rough Magic, Druid Theatre Company, and Abhann Productions, the company that created Riverdance.


Ennis' Studio at The Complex is florals and sequins abound, with rails of outfits ready to dress contestants. Ennis' fellow costume supervisor Niamh O Connor says that the secret of style success on the show is comfort, remarking that "Celebrities are not pro dancers and it’s our job to make them feel as comfy as possible, so they don’t have to worry about clothes and can concentrate on their performance and the dance."
