STUDENT PROFILE (1)
Senior (Class of 2012) studying Art History and Photography.
I ran into Madison in the costume shop and asked her if she would participate in my first Student Profile!
Madison (in the top picture) is working on a dress for her job in Bennington’s Costume shop. I also managed to get some pictures of the shop all lit up from the giant VAPA windows (bottom two pictures)
Madison has worked in the shop for two years and enjoys the work as a way to “be a part of the [drama performance] shows” even though performing isn’t really her thing. She’s currently working on mending and creating a dress out of a “weird piece” that the costume crew found.
Madison’s proof that you don’t need to be a Costume Design, Fashion Design, or Theater student at Bennington to get your hands dirty in the Costume Shop. It really is a magical place.
p.s. Student Profiles will be an on-going segment on the blog, and any suggestions would be highly appreciated!!
