No. 2: Gray mini skirt, white tank top and ivory fur jacket and Vivienne Westwood heels with Naomi Campbell during the Designer of the Year Awards at the Natural History Museum in New York City, October 19, 1993
- Shoutout to all the designers and technicians whose awards were given during commercial breaks and whose speeches were cut to a 5 second sound bite
- Shoutout to all the stage managers and technicians who made the Tony Awards run smoothly and perfectly
- Shoutout to the sound designers who would have been nominated but were robbed of recognition by the still bullshit removal of their award
- Shoutout to every young designer or technician who watches the Tonys year after year while the awards they may one day be nominated for are distributed offscreen because “~There’s no way to fit everyone otherwise~”
- You are a crucial part of theater and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Be loud. Demand recognition. Do not settle for less.
Latest for CIO magazine and the 2015 Industry innovation Awards Ceremony. The story and the event are to celebrate winners who are light years ahead in what they are doing in the industry.

Each winner at this year’s BRIT Awards (@brits) will walk away with their own unique trophy. “I had one initial idea that opened up a world of connecting ideas,” says Pam Hogg (@pamhoggfashion), the designer and musician asked to design the award this year. “I ended up with a mini army of statues.” Each of the trophies is hand-painted: some are brightly color-blocked, others are black and white or completely covered in glitter. Making things, especially music and clothes, has always come naturally to Pam. “It’s like breathing,” she explains.
