Michael_K_Wood_headshotAbout Michael Kenneth Wood: 
Michael is an international award winning milliner who has made a career out of working both sides of the aisle – as administer and artist. His creative design career began with Howard Community College’s Arts Collective (AC) two decades ago under the leadership of Susan G. Kramer. During his many years with HCC’s AC, Michael held many titles, including Props and Wardrobe Manager, Resident Costume Designer, Stage Manager, Set Dresser, Performer, Playwright, and Arts Collective’s Associate Artistic Director. A few of Michael’s AC artistic credits include: Costume Design: Pippin, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, A Christmas Carol, Letters to S.A.N.T.A. – Set Dressing: Noises Off, Letters to S.A.N.T.A. – Performance Credits: Schmediman in Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet, and Rev. Hale in The Crucible. He was also the Co-Author of AC’s original devised production of Letters to S.A.N.T.A.

Michael studied Fashion and Costume Design at Parsons The New School for Design. He went on to receive his Certificate of Millinery from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City. He completed his formal design education by earning his HNC in Millinery from Kensington and Chelsea College, in London. He has worked as the Assistant Milliner for The Metropolitan Opera in NYC as well as constructing hats for The Rockettes. In New Orleans he worked as a mask maker with designs being sold through the Mardi Gras Museum of Costume and Culture. Michael Is currently preparing to open a design boutique featuring headwear, masks, and jewelry under his own label as well as transforming his design style into additional custom home accessories ranging from lighting and chandeliers to furniture pieces and wall art.
