Prior to her work in Film and Television, Stacy was born and raised in a small town along Bayou Lafourche, outside of New Orleans. Her Lebanese grandparents owned and operated a Department Store in Louisiana, so from a very young age, Stacy had a passion for fashion, costumes, history and storytelling. After spending a year at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York studying fashion design, she returned to Louisiana to finish her Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University. While in undergrad, Stacy enrolled in a theatre class as an elective and discovered the compelling world of storytelling through costume design. Costume Design incapsulated everything she loved into one. After much hard work in the theatre, Stacy was awarded a scholarship to DePaul University, The Theatre School, in Chicago where she earned her Masters of Fine Arts Degree.
While designing school productions on the Main Stage at DePaul’s Merle Reskin Theatre in Downtown Chicago, Stacy was also costume designing regional productions for Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. After graduation, Stacy moved to Los Angeles, where she currently lives and works globally. In addition to being a Costume Design story teller, Stacy participates in the University credited mentorship program working with Louisiana State University and Southern University design students for the past three years.
