CIC | A Special Message from Costume Designer Ann Hould-Ward and her Design Team

Stage Directions • Industry NewsTheatre Buzz • April 9, 2021

Tony Award-winning Costume Designer Ann Hould-Ward and her design team, Christopher Vergara and Abby Hahn have a special message for you in support of the Costume Industry Coalition and our Recovery Fund. The CIC thanks Ann, Christopher, and Abby for helping them spread awareness about the custom costume industry and advocating for their survival. Save The Costume Industry and donate today to the CIC Recovery Fund.

The CICs over 500 costume artisans and experts are involved in every aspect of the costume industry, from concept to care. Since they started, they’ve partnered with a non-for-profit fiscal sponsor, The Artisans Guild of America, and began fundraising for its Recovery Fund. They also began lobbying the government to ensure the creative economy gets the relief it needs. A year later they are still recovering but they are ALL ready to get back to work. They’ve travelled a very long road and they know they still have a long way to go. But as the entire entertainment industry is poised to begin its recovery, the support they have received has fortified them with the strength to push forward. The Costume Industry Coalition can’t thank you enough.
