I've been teaching costume design at Duke Ellington School of the Performing Arts over the past 10 years in Georgetown, DC. It has been a privilege and an honor to be invited to re establish a state of the art curriculum in costume design and all of its components to create a community of industry professionals.  To mentor and nurture the next generation of skilled artisans to enjoy the fruits of our labor, continue the art of technical design and production at the entry level to inspire and educate at the high school level for focused aspiring professionals.  They will be able to collaborate with professional crews to complete the production efficiently.  I look forward to hearing from any and all that can contribute to this opportunity to support those that are underprivileged and undeserved in our community because they all have something valuable to contribute to our society and history.
This last three years in the newly renovated and state of the art architecture have been exciting as we all seek support for the arts departmental needs in supplies, equipment, sufficient electrical and wifi availability to the costume shop to give the students the most professional example and atmosphere to learn their crafts while working with the professional shows brought to the beautiful venues the building houses.  So we have great expectations as each year has opened more interest to build what only dedicated, determined and disciplined supporters of the arts can do.  We know the possibilities, I came to share with the students the life I found in costume and fashion design.  Join me in establishing my Fenner Originale legacy in Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Technical Design and Production Department, Costume Design Instruction.
