In 1982, Adri received the prestigious Coty American Fashion Critics "Winnie" award. The records document Adri's business and professional life, with materials largely arranged according to year and season. Includes clippings and tear sheets, photographic materials, press kits, presentation portfolios, sketches, swatches, and video recordings.
