While I was attending Grad School at UCLA, I had the opportunity to do my work-study at the David C. Copley Center for Costume Design. The chair of the department, Dr. Deborah Nadoolman Landis, happens to be an incredible costume designer, teacher, and author. She has written some of the best books on costume design in film that are available today. I was lucky enough to work as a research assistant on various aspects of three of her newest books. One of these books is now available, and one will be available on October 15th. I do not know the release date for the third book.
As a research assistant, I had to not only know about costume design and fashion history, but also about computer programs and research methods. I had to be detail oriented, organized, and communicate all of the information I found clearly. I can not describe how cool it is to see my name listed in these books.
