Sustainability, celebrity dressing, out-of-touch fashion magazines and even Susan Sontag’s burial outfit were among the range of topics touched upon by a panel at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Thursday night.
The Washington Post’s Robin Givhan peppered Francisco Costa, Yeohlee Teng, and Maria Cornejo — all of whom have won the Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Award for fashion — with questions about their craft and businesses. Before panelists got into the nitty gritty of their work lives, the museum’s new director Bill Moggridge introduced himself with “I’ve been a New Yorker for five days now.” Like the designers in the room, his work — the first laptop computer — is on display in “Design USA: Contemporary Innovation.”
