The Art Directors Guild of America are giving their Lifetime Acheivement award to a favorite designer of mine – Patricia Norris.
An acclaimed costume and production designer she is best know for her collaborations with film maker David Lynch.
Norris began her career as a costume designer, moving on to production design and sometimes doing both.
She began her collaboration with Lynch designing the costumes for “The Elephant Man” which earned her an Academy Award nomination.
Since then she went on to production design “Blue Velvet”, “Twin Peaks”, “Wild At Heart”, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” & “Lost Highway” all for Lynch.
She has been nominated 4 more times for an Oscar for costumes – “Days Of Heaven”, “Victor/Victoria”, “2010” & “Sunset”. She won a production design Emmy for “Twin Peaks”.
