We talked to Margaret about the first Open Audition held here at the D&D Building in October, and she gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse to this major event that promises to splash unpublished pros and undiscovered amateurs onto the pages of AD and the pages of the AD website.
It's not trend, it's style. They weren't judges, they were reviewers. And AD isn’t as elitist as you might think. Margaret sets us straight, and she does it with all the charm, grace and elegance you’d expect from the shelter mag that’s been setting the standard of “grown up style” for over 88 years.
Margaret also talks about AD Style, the budget-friendly section of AD, just one of the ways the magazine is reaching out to a broader, less Upper Eastside crowd, and how even the budget-challenged should be picking AD up off the newsstand. And "special guest star" Special Projects Editor James Munn talks about some exciting new features on the AD website.

Don’t forget, you can review the first batch of selected designers and vote on your favorites at the AD website.
