From August 2013 through December 2013, Lauren was busy working as a draper and cutter at Eric Winterling, Inc. She devoted most of her time there to helping create 80 new Rockettes costumes for the new finale number, titled SNOW. Lauren was 1 of 6 drapers to help make designer Gregg Barnes' vision come to fruition. Below is an image of the fruits of her labor! The two dresses on the right hand side are Lauren's work.
It's always refreshing to step out of the theater world and spend time on a side project. A friend of mine is getting married, and has purchased a beautiful gold sequin dress to wear. Together, she and I are going to make it the wedding dress of her dreams! Below is a "before" picture of the purchased dress; I will upload "after" pictures after the wedding!
Lauren is happy to announce that she will be designing costumes for a production of Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT, at Allentown Shakespeare in the Park, with director Moritz von Stuelpnagel! Lauren is excited to be working with Moritz again, and can't wait for this hilarious, beautiful production! The show runs the first week of August- check back for more info later!
Lauren is lucky enough to have a great space, solely devoted to her home studio! With her new Bernina 1008 in hand, and a big space available, she is now doing contract work out of her Garwood, NJ home.
Contact Lauren for more info about contract work, and outsourced projects!
