Ann Closs-Farley has been designing for Opera, Theater, Film and T.V. for over 25 years. The diversity of her work and interest is where her talent lies. She loves all aspects of Costume Design: history, fashion, textiles, technology, mechanics, human reflection, spirit, and most of all, story. She is interested in discovering and learning new ways to re-invent and create transformative ways to make costumes speak to the imagination. In addition to being a wildly creative and hugely talented designer and artist, Ann Closs-Farley passionately espouses ideas of using recyclable and thrift store materials in her work. She has a keen interest in current technologies and finds ways to incorporate them into all her creations.
