some friends and i met up at the yardhouse at LA live for some drinks and spotted dawn marie forsyth, fidm's very own fashion design chairperson, having dinner with some of her colleagues. i've met her a couple of times, but not enough to just say hello outside of school. it was the night after the 2009 graduation ceremony - which was held at the staples center in downtown LA. the crowd at the restuarant was lookin' fierce. ms. forsyth herself wore this fabulous black ensemble and a beautiful headpiece that collected just the right side of her hair. it's a great look, but i'm hoping she's NOT wearing one of *cotton cocky kid's design. we admire designers who love fashion for the heart and soul of it...not for fame and money. so let's hope dmf is on our side.
