This morning, the Costume Designers Guild hosted a breakfast panel discussion with some of the winners, nominees and honorees of the 2009 CDG awards. It was really great! I am working on multimedia presentations to post here to Frocktalk, and I think they are going to be pretty great when they are finished. For the record, my new favorite person is Michael O’Connor, costume designer of The Duchess. He just might turn into your new favorite person, too! Stay tuned for the multimedia posts in the coming week! And thanks to Valerie Laven-Cooper and to Hope Hanafin for getting this event together – it was lovely!!!
