8 The Costume Designer Fall 2016 CONTRIBUTORS 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 the- ater 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 (Boldface Names, What's On What's In, Scrapbook) 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 moving 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." STACY ELLEN RICH (Co-contributor to Boldface Names) Stacy Ellen Rich joined the CDG in 2005 and she is thrilled to be involved with the magazine. 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 jour- ney 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 accolades earned by our Guild members. CHRISTINE COVER FERRO (Cosplayers: Our Biggest Fans) Christine Cover Ferro joined the Guild in 2012 after nine years of theatre and indie work in Los Angeles. Previous stops included costume work in her adopted hometown 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. 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." DARELL FUENTES (When You Shop For Yourself, Illustration) Darell Fuentes is a Professional Illustrator who has been active- ly working in fashion and enter- tainment media for close to 10 years in Southern California. He is eager to make his mark in Costume Illustration, and to have positive contributions to the craft he cares for very deeply. New CDG address and phone number: 3919 Magnolia Blvd. Burbank, CA 91505 818.848.2800 "As relentless speed is now a hard standard and the need to sculpt as we illustrate increases, we evolve from artists to technicians. The concept of speedball friction on coarse sketchbook paper is a sweet and distant memory. I am happy to have experienced the cycle and can't wait to see what the next decade brings." –Felipe Sanchez
