Ruth E. Carter, the costume designer for Marvel’s Black Panther, will be honored with the Career Achievement Award at the 21st annual Costume Designer’s Guild Awards (CDGA) February 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The awards gala recognizes and celebrates excellence in short form costume design, television, and film. With over 30 years in the industry, Carter has designed costumes for memorable films such as Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Reginald Hudlin’s Marshall and Ava Duvernay’s Selma. It was Carter’s work on Spike Lee’s Malcolm X and Steven Spielberg’s Amistad that landed her two Oscar-nominations making her the first black person nominated for Best Costume Design.

As one of the most innovative and passionate leaders in her craft, the CDG board, and its members can think of no more deserving recipient of the CDGA 2019 Career Achievement Award than Ruth E. Carter,” Salvador Perez, President of the Costume Designers Guild, stated.
