Jan 29, 2019

Fern Mallis sits down with the legendary costume and fashion designer Bob Mackie to discuss his life in fashion—and a career that spans five decades, nine Emmy Award wins, three Academy Award nominations, and an induction into the Television Hall of Fame.

From the drawing for the nude rhinestone-studded gown that Marilyn Monroe wore to sing “Happy Birthday” to John F. Kennedy, to Hollywood and working with Judy Garland and Carol Burnett, to his iconic collaborations with Diana Ross and Cher in the 1970s, to creating dresses for stars like Rihanna and RuPaul, Mackie has been and continues to be one of the most influential American designers of our times, whose work exudes timeless glamour. Join them for a highly anticipated career conversation.
