Wendy Ross Kaufman: Fairy Dust Sprinkler
Wendy Ross Kaufman received her BS in Apparel Design from The University of Maryland in 1985. Since then, she has had her hands in bridal design, theater props and costumes, children’s clothing, teaching, performance art, fiber art, and graphic design.
Nowadays, all of these disciplines find their way into everything she does, and she finds that she is having an increasingly difficult time distinguishing why they were ever separate in the first place.
Her target audience is anyone who wants fun and fine clothing. Her clients want original and show-stopping outfits. They want the bridal dress that will be talked about for ages. They want the cocktail dress that will not be lost in the sea of little black dresses that have been de rigueur in the fashion world and held its special events in a monochromatic choke-hold for ages. She has been dubbed “The Betsey Johnson of Baltimore,” and revels in the title.
Among other publications, her work appears in three coffee table books: “The Costume Maker’s Art”, ”Fiberarts Design Book IV”, and “The Costume Book”. You may also see her on Bravo’s Project Runway DVD, season one, and TLC’s “DC Cupcakes.” She sells her work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/sithich.
