My name is Mari and I'm a USA 829
Costume Designer and Assistant Costume Designer.
MARI IS CURRENTLY THE COSTUME SHOP SUPERVISOR AT FLORIDA STUDIO THEATRE
IN SARASOTA FL
(and is currently no longer freelancing)
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I make my current home in Sarasota, FL.
In 2017, I graduated from Southern Methodist University with my MFA in Stage Design- emphasis on Costume Design.. I also hold a Bachelor in Arts in Theatre from Miami University of Ohio.
As a designer, I bring acting experience and wardrobe experience to my process in production. I work hard to give actors and directors the garments needed to create characters that will touch audiences and support the story, as well as collaborate with all disciplines.
As an assistant, I use combination of organization, efficiency and a sense of humor to work hard to support my shop and my designer to produce the best production possible.
"Reflecting those flying colors, the costumes by Mari Taylor were wildly creative, fantastical in the best sense of the word, and entirely appropriate for each character in this approach to The Winter’s Tale." - Chris Jackson, Associate Critic for John Garcia's THE COLUMN
