Fashion Editor Roberts awarded 'Best of the Best'

April 28, 1994

The Sun's fashion coverage was honored at the Atrium Awards, for excellence in reporting on the American garment industry. Sponsored by The University of Georgia College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Atlanta Apparel rTC Mart, the 14th annual awards were presented in Atlanta last Sunday.

Sun Fashion Editor Vida Roberts won in the features category for her story "Men in Skirts." Judges noted that although fringe trends touch few readers, good reporting puts fads into perspective for the mainstream and quoted from Ms. Roberts' story: "Men in skirts may sound frightening to the man whose wildest fashion statement to date has been a pair of patterned socks. Not to worry, designer skirts are certainly not a look that will ever be paired with wing-tips, but some will make their way to retail racks."

The "Best of the Best" George A. Hough 3rd award for overall superior reporting on the apparel industry also was won by Ms. Roberts.

In the special sections category, Catherine Cook, editor of Distinction magazine; Sun photographer Patrick Sandor and Ms. Roberts shared awards for the fall fashion issue, "Romancing the Past," which was photographed among the art treasures of the Walters Art Gallery.
