Samantha’s masks hit the big screen
8 February 2017
The world is about to see masquerade masks by NTU alumna and creative businesswoman Samantha Peach (BA Hons Communication Studies 1991) in one of the biggest films of the year.
The the second instalment in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker, will hit cinemas on 10 February and will feature Samantha’s work as we see the lead character, Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson), at masquerade ball with her lover, Christian Grey.
Samantha, who sells her products online all over the world, said: “I wasn’t made aware, at first, that the order was for the film, but later I was contacted by the producers who confirmed it. The costume designer asked for dozens of our Silver Lace Goddess masks to be rushed over to Vancouver for filming - my wildest dream was that the character wearing it would be Anastasia Steele, and I’m
super-excited that the mask is being used in both the trailer for the film and the promotional poster.”
Samantha’s masks are in demand and have been featured on Strictly Come Dancing. She also featured in Network, NTU’s alumni magazine, after
providing masquerade masks for the Wayne and Coleen Rooney wedding
reception in 2008.
Fifty Shades Darker will be in cinemas in the UK from February 10.
