Agnes De Lucchi, better know to all of us as Aggie, was born and raised in California and attended Humboldt State where she received her degree in set and costume design. Through the years, she has shared her skills and creative talents with many different venues from community and children’s theater, college productions, Shakespeare Festivals and Light Opera companies. At Shasta College, Aggie was the costume and scenery designer, and taught classes to share her expertise. She then worked at Morrison Theatre in Hayward for nine years as the costume shop manager and she also designed costumes and scenery. On the side, she had a design business providing costumes for high school and college productions, and dance studios.
In 1989, Aggie was instructor for Ohlone College in their costume shop and rental department and worked there for the next nine years. She moved to Boulder Creek during that time and commuted to work over the hill. Aggie then worked part time at Foothill College, and went back to school at Cabrillo for ECE classes to become a preschool teacher and worked at CCSLV for two years.
Aggie first shared her costume collection in Boulder Creek at Mac’s Place in 2007 and then opened Agz Ragz in 2009. Starting out with just the front room, the business has expanded to fill the whole space including a full design studio and classroom area.
