Costume Design Bridge Project

Costume Design Bridge Project

The Costume Design Program announces Poppy Cannon-Reese as a Guest Artist in the MFA program in Spring, 2015.  Ms. Cannon-Reese is the Manager of Universal Studios Costume Department; she also has a distinguished career as a Costume Designer and Stylist for feature films and commercials.

The Costume Design Bridge Project connects current MFA students to accomplished professionals in all aspects of the entertainment industry.  Each Guest Artists creates and leads a design project addressing current practices or challenges in their field. 

Students learn how to use professional resources, create effective communication for a creative team and discover the high expectations of real world costume design projects.  Each student receives professional level feedback modeled on contemporary designers, directors and producers.  As part of the Bridge Project, students venture out of the campus environment to work in real- world locations, such as the Universal Studios back lot.
