Clarion Overmoyer was raised in Bloomfield, NY where she inherited a love of resourceful sewing, knitting and crafting from her mother.  She graduated Cum Laude from Hofstra University with a BFA in theater, where she also honed her patterning and costume construction skills.  An alumna of the Public Theater, Clarion spent several years on Broadway; including Hair, Wicked, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, and On Your Feet!  Ms. Overmoyer found her home at Paul Taylor Dance in 2011 and has since lovingly reconstructed costumes for many Taylor classic dances including favorites such as Fibers, Equinox, Airs, and Junction. Passionate about dying, spinning and recycling yarn, she also sells her own handspun and upcycled yarns. Her Costume Design debut with the company is scheduled for 2020.
