Minjee Kasckow is a costume creator based in Pittsburgh, PA with a BA in Neuroscience from Oberlin College and soon to be MFA graduate in Costume Production from Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Drama. Prior to starting at Carnegie Mellon, Minjee began working with design and construction of costumes in the University of Pittsburgh theatre department as a student, while ending in an interim staff position. During this period, she also worked as a costume designer and technician for local opera companies.
In her time at CMU, Minjee has had the opportunity to work on a variety of productions including plays, musicals, operas, and dance productions as part of curricular work, while working on pieces for more wide-spread productions at Krostyne Studio during the summers. In her first year she was the recipient of the Elizabeth Schrader Kimberly Fellowship.
Amidst the stay-at-home orders Minjee is keeping busy making masks and keeping her creativity flowing with painting and costume creation. Her eventual goal is independent business ownership in costume and clothing production.
