Aly received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion & Costume Design from Columbia College Chicago, and is about as well-versed in wielding a needle and thread as she is in the art of design and styling.
With eight years of experience working as a costume designer, fashion designer, stylist, vintage buyer, and retailer, she has gained a background in all areas of entertainment including: film, theater, commercials, print, television, and music.
Ms. Barohn also has a passion for conceptual design and wearable art, and her advanced sewing and pattern-making skills allow her to create custom designs for any project, big or small.
She created costumes for Linkin Park's "Iridescent" video, in which she manipulated wearable found objects including animal bones, leather, and various metals.
Her conceptual design can also be seen in the interactive art piece "Human Zoo," featured in The Dirty Durty Diary, a bi-annual art and culture magazine.
In addition to her freelance work, Aly also owns an on-line vintage shop and handmade shop where she sells her finds and creations: Grandma Marie Vintage (vintage clothing shop) Bow la Beau (handmade accessories shop).
She is currently located in Brooklyn, NY, but has extensive work experience throughout the US. She is happy and willing to travel for projects.
