The 2019 NYWIFT Designing Women Awards are on June 11th, and we’re excited as always to attend. It is an evening of celebrating, honoring and connecting and it is always a blast. This year’s lineup is exceptional.
This year we’ll be treated to the comedy stylings of Zainab Johnson, who will be hosting the show. You may know her from HBO’s All Def Comedy, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Arsenio, BET’s Comic View, MTV’s Acting Out or the web series Avant-Guardians. We are looking forward to her humor and energy to keep the show flowing.
Other presenters include Rachel Brosnahan, Zazie Beetz, Caroline Aaron, Marin Hinkle, and Lesley Stahl along with a few surprises. The presenters are key to this great night, they are colleagues who know the honorees well and who rely on the gifts of these amazing designers. The presenters are always funny and touching.
