BIO

Sally Ann Parsons and her husband, James Meares, founded Parsons-Meares in 1980 after working many years with the brilliant Ray Diffen. From squatting in an abandoned school building, the business grew to become one of the premier costume shops in New York City, producing costumes for, among others, Sophisticated Ladies, Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King, Sunset Boulevard, Starlight Express, The Will Rogers Follies, Victor/Victoria, Guys and Dolls, Wonderful Town, Kiss Me Kate, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Wicked, Spider Man - Turn Off the Dark, Aladdin, and most recently Hamilton. Since James’ death in 2008, Sally Ann has been the sole owner, often with more than 50 dressmakers, craftspeople and artists working on a single project. In recognition of her outstanding contribution to the field of costume technology, she received the 2009 TDF Irene Sharaff Artisan Award.
