Honorable Mention in the '2008 Designers of the Year' Award!
I'm delighted to announce that I was given an Honorable Mention for the inaugural 2008 Designers of the Year Award!
It's a Western Canadian Award started by Western Living Magazine that recognises accomplishments in architecture, fashion, interior design, furniture landscaping, and eco-friendly design. Judges included John Fluevog, Peter J. Nygård,Tobias Wong’s , Douglas Coupland, Arthur Erickson and more. The winners are all an undeniably talented and accomplished group. An Honourable Mention is extra lovely as most of the categories did not have them- just the sole winning place.
My category was Fashion Designer of the Year with judges John Fluevog and Peter J. Nygård.
