COSTUME DESIGNER BIO:
Originally from New York, Kerrie moved to San Francisco in1999 and was creatively invigorated by the colors and textures of the city and its surroundings. She enrolled in the Fashion Design program at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). After graduation, she was one of four students accepted into FIDM's third-year Advanced Study Program in Theatre Costume in Los Angeles and was awarded the Alex Rolden Scholarship.
After school, she has been working consistently as an innovative costume designer for film, theater and music video’s on such projects as “Good Time Max” written, directed and starring James Franco (Spiderman) and “How To Be A Serial Killer” starring Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) to name a few.
Her trademark style uses compelling color combinations and lush texture through fabric manipulation, all which draws upon Greek mythology, the Middle Ages, and classic fairytales for inspiration. As a result, Kerrie manages to produce a classic, bold and yet elegant style all her own that transports the common into a realm of magic and fantasy.
When not working as a costume designer; Kerrie also fabricates her own unique one-of-a-kind clothing and jewelry designs under the name Opal Moon, and sells at boutiques, galleries, and art exhibits across the country.
