Information about MonikaG.Costumes
Disclaimer: This is my first website and I am very excited about it! Please bear with me as I learn about website design, inserting links, graphic, etc.
I created this website mainly for the assignments of my History of Fashion and Dress class, a free online class for self-directed study authored by Tara Maginnis, Ph.D.
I am a drama therapist in California and in the process of acquiring theatre experience for the national registration (RDT), I found my passion -- costum design and construction. I am taking the History of Fashion and Dress class to learn about period costume so that I will be able to study, design, and construct such costumes myself.
