8 The Costume Designer Winter 2016 MARCY FROEHLICH (History of Dress, Text) Marcy Froehlich joined the Guild in 1992 fresh from New York and Broadway. Her designs have run the gamut from theater and opera to film and TV, from Waiting for Godot to the Miss America Pageant. She also co-authored (with Barbara Inglehart and Pamela Shaw) Shopping LA. Froehlich has long had an interest in historical cos- tume and research, so she is delighted to contribute to the magazine in this way. BONNIE NIPAR (Associate Editor, Awards) Bonnie Nipar joined the Guild in 1997 and works as a Costume Designer for television. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, she was an art student at Carnegie Mellon before mov- ing to Los Angeles and entering the indus- try. A huge fan of The Costume Designer, Nipar happily took over four recurring columns. "It's a treat to honor the latest accomplishments of our peers." CHRISTINE COVER FERRO (Associate Editor, Co-contributor to Boldface Names, Awards) Christine Cover Ferro joined the Guild in 2012 after nine years of theatre and indie work in Los Angeles. Previous stops includ- ed costume work in her adopted home- town of Miami, as well as Boston and the Twin Cities. She studied theatre design at Brandeis University and Macalester College. As a lover of storytelling in all forms, she enjoys exploring the different facets of Costume Design and bringing them to light in the magazine. STACY ELLEN RICH (Co-contributor to Boldface Names, Awards) Stacy Ellen Rich joined the CDG in 2005 and she is thrilled to be involved with the maga- zine. Her design career began with study in Florence, Italy, and flourished within the sphere of Chicago Theater, which catapulted her into the world of film. The journey has seen her through many amazing experiences in medias as varied as film, performance art, and music video. Additionally, Rich's designs have been on view in the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and the Tate Modern in London. It is her pleasure to assist in compiling the fantastic array of acco- lades earned by our Guild members. CONTRIBUTORS ROBIN RICHESSON (History of Dress, Illustrator) After joining the Guild in 1992, Richesson currently works as a costume illustrator, a storyboard artist, and educator. "I trained to work as an illustrator for print (publishing) so when the CDG began the magazine, I was pleased to be asked to illustrate for it. I love working in film, but I have to admit, I missed seeing my work in print. The History of Dress column is a great way for me to learn more about clothing and participate in this publication." A REMINDER The 18th Costume Designers Guild Awards will be held on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
