Sydney Moss completed the certificate program at Pratt in Continuing Education for Interior Design and is currently in the MFA Interior Design Program at Parsons School of Design with a Merit Scholarship (2024). She is also working as a Research Assistant for Director Michele Gorman for the Decolonized and Decarbonized Dinner Party
Sydney started sewing when she was ten years old, learning from a family friend in the attic of her neighbor’s house. Her first piece was a dress for her sister’s bat mitzvah. She hasn’t stopped working since.
She went on to earn a B.A. in English Literature and Classics at Kenyon College in Ohio. She knew she loved the study of literature and narrative but maintained her passion for the creative arts. This brought her to costuming, where she could continue to tell stories while working with her hands. 
Sydney’s professional experience includes work for Diego Montoya Studio, helping create larger-than-life, subversive costumes for drag artists and queer performers. There she worked on custom pieces for Sasha Velour, Lady Gaga’s 911 video/short film, Shangela’s dress for the 2019 Oscars Red Carpet, and countless outfits for contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Simultaneously, she worked as a firsthand at preeminent Broadway costume shop Parsons-Meares. Her work for the shop included costumes for The Lion King, Moulin Rouge, Wicked, Disney on Ice, and the North American Tour of Disney’s FROZEN on Broadway.  
As COVID brought live performances to a standstill, she began her own art practice, operating out of a converted historic mansion in Clinton Hill as part of the All in One Collective
