Sketch to Screen 2016
The seventh annual Sketch to Screen Costume Design Oscar Panel, presented by Swarovski, is a celebration of costume design and feature a discussion by designers nominated for the 89th Academy Awards from 2016’s most provocative films.
On the panel will be three current Oscar nominees: Consolata Boyle ("Florence Foster Jenkins"), Madeline Fontaine ("Jackie") and Mary Zophres ("La La Land") as well as distinguished costume designers Erin Benach ("Loving"), Sharen Davis ("Fences") and Arianne Phillips ("Nocturnal Animals"). The panel discussion will begin at 2 p.m. at Schoenberg Hall with a reception to follow. Space is limited.
The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television's David C. Copley Center for Costume Design, headed by its founding director, professor Deborah Nadoolman Landis, has a longstanding partnership with Swarovski to provide annual support to the highly successful Sketch to Screen event; the Swarovski Designer in Residence master-class program; and the Swarovski Shooting Star Award for Excellence in Costume Design. Drawing on their rich heritage of collaboration with both the stars and the designers of costumes and sets, Swarovski aims to nurture the talent of the future.
This year at the Feb. 25 event, the Swarovski award for excellence will be presented to one UCLA TFT M.F.A. costume design student who has shown exemplary strides in his or her work, earning the annual scholarship prize.
Additionally, two-time Academy Award nominee Ruth Carter ("Amistad," "Malcolm X") will be the 2017 Swarovski Designer in Residence. She will work with costume design students and present a public program.
