Warner is a costume designer from San Francisco. She has experience in theater, opera and dance and a love of storytelling through clothes. After graduating from Vassar College with a BA in drama and computer science, she worked as a costume design assistant at the California Shakespeare Theater in Berkeley, Calif., before moving to New York City where she was a costume intern at the Juilliard School. Prior to grad school, she worked at Catherine Zuber’s studio on My Fair Lady and Moulin Rouge and joined the Santa Fe Opera’s costume shop during the summer. At Carnegie Mellon, Warner has twice been awarded the Graduate Small Project Help Research Grant: once for in-person research that included going to the Prague Quadrennial and the Innovative Costumes of the 21st Century: The Next Generation exhibition and symposium in Moscow; and once for materials supporting her thesis “Costuming Baba Yaga: An Exploration of Imperial Russia through Ballet, Fashion, and Fairy Tales.”
