The Seventh Annual Critics Awards Show for the Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design was staged in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday night. It was a zany and enlightening look at the future, as well as the past and present, of California fashion. 90-Minute Show The students themselves represented the future.
