ICON AWARD WINNER: RUTH E. CARTER
Just last week, LA Design Festival released the latest installment of their podcast called Design Etc. It's a conversation with this year's Icon Award winner, Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter. The ICON award recognizes one woman per year since LADF's inception, who have made an indelible mark on Los Angeles, culture, and society in general through their work, character, and creative leadership. It was an honor to go to her home, and talk about her costume design for Black Panther, Amistad, and Selma (just to name a few!). Check out the Interview of Ruth E. Carter .
