Hello, Frocktalkers!! Our friend Chris over at Clothesonfilm.com has written a very thoughtful wrap-up of the year in costumes for you. I thought you might like to read it as nominating ballots start to arrive in the mail, hahaha. We have had a really gorgeous run of costumes in 2011, ranging from fancy to distressed. As awards season starts in earnest, I will do my best to keep you updated. I will soon be going on location until May 2012, so I will sadly miss the CDG Awards, but will make sure to have coverage of the event for you at the ready. Thanks, Frocktalkers, for your interest and enthusiasm in our art form, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
