Times Wins Four Fashion Awards

April 23, 1999

The Los Angeles Times has won four of the 1999 Atrium Awards for fashion coverage--more than any other publication this year.

Fashion writer Michael Quintanilla was recognized in the features category for a profile of Lat Naylor, a designer in San Francisco who closed up shop. Times staff writer Mimi Avins received two awards: in reporting on a specific event for her coverage of the fall collections, and in criticism for her commentary on the CaliforniaMart Designer Awards. Freelance writer Mark Ehrman won for a Times Magazine story on a Fred Segal buyer, John Eshaya.

Valli Herman-Cohen, who joined The Times in January as senior fashion writer, was part of the Dallas Morning News staff recognized with an Atrium Award for its special 20th anniversary section.

The Atrium, the only national award to recognize coverage of the fashion industry, is a public service project of the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Georgia. The awards will be presented in Atlanta this weekend.
