Professor Dennis Wright, faculty lead over Fabularis, described this show as one of a kind. Wright brings with him decades of experience in costume design and fashion, beginning with a Bachelor of Science degree in clothing and textiles from BYU and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Boston University in theatrical costume design.

“Fabularis a great opportunity to see students' creativity in an open-ended way,” said Wright. “The show is high drama and high fashion. What’s not to like?”

Ryver Mecham, a student designer creating a legendary look for Fabularis, agrees with Wright in that the students’ creativity sparked some exciting designs.

“I was really excited when I first heard about this concept of myths,” said Mecham. “This project has been about the idea of getting to explore and combine myths which has been a lot of fun for me.”

Mecham took inspiration from Norse mythology for their design. Their look is inspired by Hel, the Norse goddess of the underworld. As a daughter of the trickster god Loki, she was cast out of Asgard after her birth and sent to the underworld.

“I’ve loved getting to see my ideas come to life,” said Mecham. “Typically, as a costume designer you design the looks and then someone else constructs them. Having this be my project from the very beginning has been really rewarding.”

With both the earlier shows being completely sold out, the 10:30 p.m. showing is the last chance for audience members to see these student designs come to life on stage. It promises to be a fabulous fashion-filled evening. Don’t miss the late show!

TMA Professor Brings 30 Years of Costume Design Experience to BYU Productions and Tours

August 12, 2019 12:00 AM
BYU Theatre and Media Arts professor Dennis Wright designed over 400 costumes for the 2019 China Spectacular! BYU Department of Theatre and Media Arts professor Dennis Wright developed a love for costume design while he was in junior high. What started out as a unique fashion sense and a knack for homemade Halloween costumes has turned into a successful career that has taken Wright all over the world. Mostly recently, costume designing took Wright to China on BYU’s China Spectacular! 40th anniversary tour. Inevitably on the largest tour BYU has ever done, there was a high demand for costumes — over 400. Wright alongside a small team of cutters, drapers and stitchers, was responsible for the costumes worn by 160 student performers in eight performing groups. “At times, the scale of this production was certainly overwhelming,” said Wright. “However, I truly enjoyed bringing the vision and purpose of this show to reality. China Spectacular! was a fantastic experience! Having the opportunity to work with eight different performing groups and their directors was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Read the full story at tma.byu.edu.
