The Backdrop: Paramount Pictures Studios

You were the stars on the iconic Hollywood movie lot that night. At the outdoor reception leading off Celebration, you walked the red carpet, mingled with the likes of “Johnny Depp” and enjoyed time with friends. Many of you took a private tour around the 165-acre, self-supporting property with its own bank, fire department and hospital. Red was the color of the night, although white and black made plenty of appearances.

The Celebration: Fellows and Award Winners

Following dinner and drinks during the outdoor red carpet reception, guests adjourned to the historic Paramount Theater to pay tribute to their fellow designers. Short videos introduced the audience to the 2014 Class of Fellows, National Award winners, Elevate Award winners and Student Design Competition winner. ASID National Chair Rachelle Schoessler Lynn and Randy Fiser, CEO of ASID, brought the year’s top achievers on stage to receive their recognition. A surprise appearance by “Marilyn Monroe,” who serenaded the crowd, marked the end of the awards ceremony and prompted Randy to break into song, too. Guests then headed to the theater’s atrium where they partied till the bewitching hour and past on the illuminated dance floor. A good time was had by all.
