Description

In this audio recording, fashion designers and Parsons School of Design alumni Mark Badgley and James Mischka describe their project, "And the Winner Is…" They ask students to design gowns for a glamorous actress attending the Academy Awards, who has been nominated for an Oscar. There is no color direction but the critics insist that the colors must look good on television. The designers describe who they've dressed and how they approach dressing stars for award shows, and what works for television. Students then ask questions about the project. In the fashion show program, this project is titled, "A Night at the Oscars."
