A Look Back at Designing Women 2016

NYWIFT’s annual Designing Women gala, honoring top hair stylists, makeup artists and costume designers, has been a star-studded highlight of the New York entertainment industry’s Spring calendar since its inception in 2000. As we prepare for the 2017 event on Tuesday, June 6th at NYU Law School, we take a look back at last year’s ceremony, which honored hair stylist Rose Chatterton, makeup artist Anita Gibson, costume designer Sarah Edwards, and the team from Showtime's The Affair.


A Look Back at Designing Women: Orange is the New Black

Every year at Designing Women, in addition to honoring an individual costume designer, hair stylist and make up artist, we recognize the full costume, hair and make up team of one New York production with the Variety Ensemble Award. Past honorees include Boardwalk Empire and Sex and the City 2 but none was perhaps quite so buzzworthy as last year’s honoree, Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.


Designing Women Celebrates Design, Character and Story

What do Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, HBO's Confirmation film about Anita Hill, the rom-com It's Complicated and Showtime's The Affair all have in common? All feature the work of talented female costume, hair and makeup artists who will be honored at New York Women in Film & Television's Designing Women gala on Monday, June 13th in NYC! Now in its 17th year, Designing Women, co-presented by Variety, has become a staple of the NYC entertainment industry's spring calendar, celebrating the creative alchemy of design, character and story.
