Bob Mackie Will Receive the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award From the CFDA
With the announcement that Bob Mackie will receive the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement honor this year, the bar for this CFDA Award has just been raised. Not many designers or costumers have been influencing popular culture for as long, or across as many media, as the 80-year-old Mackie has. And talk about having a moment: This week Mackie was also nominated for a Tony Award for his work on The Cher Show. Somewhere Edith Head, the legendary and down-to-business studio costumer with whom Mackie trained, is smiling.
