Since Lauren finished up working at Eric Winterling, Inc. in December 2013, she has been freelancing and working on numerous things in both New York and New Jersey.
Lauren finished up 2013 in New York, rebuilding costumes for Sleep No More. This was a great flat-patterning experience for Lauren. She had a great opportunity to look at all the existing clothes, and take patterns off of them for new cast members. Due to a nondisclosure agreement, no photos are available :)
Lauren was then hired by Rutgers University for the month of January 2014 as a draper/pattern maker for their winter production of You Can't Take It With You, with acclaimed New York designer David Murin. This was a great experience for Lauren; going back to her alma mater as a hired professional was wonderful!
In February 2014 Lauren was commissioned by the 10th Anniversary of Sesame Street Themed Entertainment to build character costumes for the Beaches Resorts Mardi Gras parade and shows! She worked on several Cookie Monster and Zoe costumes, and was covered in glitter and faux fur for a month!
Lauren has kept busy since graduating in May of 2013! She's excited for what the future holds!
