Costume Designers Guild Awards
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 16th Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, CA. The event happens to be produced by a high school friend of mine who works for Jumpline, producers of the annual awards show.
On display and on loan from a costume house, were Dorothy's red heels from the Wizard Of Oz - so neat to see in person! (And apparently my friend Deme had these on her coffee table before returning - ha!)
We were fortunate to have access to the VIP reception (celeb hangout), and I happen to catch actress Amy Adams in a flash.
Typhanie and I had fun taking selfies in the glamorous old school mirrors at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the event took place.
We also saw Mad Men actress, Kiernan Brennan Shipka, mingling before the awards ceremony.

The next day, I attended a post event brunch and panel discussion with several of the recognized and awarded costume designers.
The event was hosted by Lacoste.
On display were fashion designs by FIDM students representing various film genres.
After the symposium was a rooftop brunch (at Siren Studios) with views of Hollywood.
Shirley and I enjoying a gorgeous February, yes February, day in LA (a glimpse of the Hollywood sign was in our backdrop).
And a very fun surprise: seeing our friend artist Gregory Siff art on the ground level entrance of Siren Studios.
