My partnership with Bag&Baggage has been one of the most creative and successful of my career. I’m thrilled and honored to be a part of this passionate company.
Melissa splits her time between heading the costume shop and designing costumes at Pacific University, and designing for local area theater companies. Melissa holds a BS in Apparel Design from Oregon State University, where her interest in costumes for theater began. She began her work with costumes in 2006, and helped to create all of their productions until she graduated in 2008; she then moved to Portland to pursue her career in the apparel industry. Melissa reignited her passion for costume design in 2010 when she began work with Oregon Ballet Theater, helping to create costumes for all of their productions for the 2010/2011 season. She has designed for numerous production companies including Mt. Hood Community College, Broadway Rose Theater Company, St. Mary’s Academy, Oregon Children’s Theater, and is the Resident Costume Designer for Bag&Baggage Productions and Pacific University. Her recent works include Our Country’s Good, Julius Caesar, Kabuki Titus, Lear, and Emma with Bag&Baggage Productions; Charlotte’s Web with Oregon Children’s Theater; and The Taming of the Shrew with Portland Actors Ensemble. Melissa thanks Bag&Baggage Productions for this engaging partnership.
