Vacuuming the red carpet in advance of the 18th Annual FIDM Costume Design Event.
My feet hurt, my back hurts, and my throat is hoarse!! It was such a fun night. There were six of us Frocktalk reporters roaming the event, and we interviewed so many people. Look forward, in the week ahead, to interviews with Audrey Fisher (True Blood), Mona May (Enchanted), George Mitchell (The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson), April Ferry (Rome), Monique Prudhomme (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Hope Hanafin (500 Days of Summer) and many, many more!
We will be posting pictures and interviews tomorrow and in the week ahead. It was a brilliant, awesome night, and big thanks to Shirley Wilson at FIDM for getting all of us in. It was an amazing event, and we all learned so much!!! Thank you!!!!

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!!!
