Dear Internet Followers,

It has been many moons since we last connected here.

Since Macbeth @ YSD, I completed my studies and earned my M.F.A. in Costume Design at Yale School of Drama!

I took no breaks (and no prisoners) and immediately began my role as Associate Costume Designer for the completely brilliant designer Marina Draghici on Sarah Ruhl's newest play "Scenes From Court Life, or The Whipping Boy and His Prince" at Yale Repertory Theater.

Please enjoy this video trailer of the project:

Seems like we are caught up for now!  I cannot wait to tell you about my upcoming projects......but you will have to wait!

Hello Internet Followers,


I am excited to present to you the most recent project I am cooking up here at Yale School of Drama.  Shakespeare's infamous "Scottish Play" helmed by fearless director Jessee Rasmussen!


We aim to create a world for Macbeth where Post-Apocalyptic Scottish Punk Warriors fight for the crown.


It has been exciting to return to Macbeth after creating the Wordplay Shakespeare Macbeth for iBook (which you can check out on my website portfolio).  This new design has the opportunity to take some of the core ideas in my design for the iBook version and take it much further with this daring young director.


Stay tuned to see how this project evolves!

We were able to squeeze in a little design meeting about our upcoming production of AIDA after the show. 


This is how it all starts:  a whole bunch of ideas just thrown onto a table!


See here, Artistic Director Miles Sternfeld is busy at work with Resident Scenic Designer Gabriel Firestone and me - some amazing things are happening!!


I cannot wait to continue working with these guys!

The Dream: Finding the perfect sweaters! 


Unfortunately, sometimes designers design things that are not findable.


This is one of those instances!


Miracle of miracle, we bought some pretty fantastic sweaters from Lands End! 

Now the "Chain Gang" (an affectionate new name for the duo Clarissa Wylie Youngberg and Pat Van Horn), is embroidering the yellow onto the sweaters with a clever chain stitch!

Perhaps this is an exercise in madness, but i really think the sweaters look great! 


And I am so blessed to have such special artisans in house who are willing to play into the madness!


Thank you Clarissa Wylie Youngberg and Pat Van Horn!!!!!!  

Dreams do come true!

Peerless has not only given me the opportunity to design an iconic cartoon version of high school today, but it also has given me the opportunity to design the perfect dress for that iconic high school dance!  I wanted to design a dress that any girl would kill to wear to hoopcoming.  Cinderella blue and all the tulle we can find!  I hope to design a dress that will make Betsy Johnson and Pat Field proud!

After all the meetings, dreaming, sketching, swatching, and is amazing when the show starts to come together!  Here are some photos from the first big day when all the items we ordered started to arrive in the shop!
