Costume Designer Jayme Hansen has been designing and constructing costumes for theatrical productions, dance, film, commercials, fashion, and music videos for over ten years. She was born and raised in the deserts of Eastern Oregon and taught herself to sew at a very young age in order to create the world in which she wanted to live. This is Jayme's third year participating in Content and is thrilled to create one of a kind pieces for the pop-up shop as well as collaborate on an impressive installation with two of her favorite Portland artists.
