40 years old
So if you guys use Google, you'll know exactly what inspired this post. Sesame Street premiered on November 10th, 1969 and is celebrating its 40th anniversary! We still have old sesame street tapes at my house and they bring back so many memories... My dad told me that when I was little, I was a total bully with the TV and I'd make him change the channel from his basketball games to Sesame Street and since I'm the oldest kid, my parents weren't used to that. I also remember having Sesame Street nicknames for all of my dad's friends. He was still in the beginning of medical school when I was born and he was the only one out of all of friends with a kid, they used to play with me a lot during study groups. It's kind of embarrassing because whenever my dad has reunions, I can never remember their real names.
Well anyways, in case you can't recognize the designers, here they are in order:
1) Diane von Furstenberg with Big Bird
2) Derek Lam & Thakoon Panichgul with Bert & Ernie
3) Vera Wang with Abby Cadabby
4) Oscar de la Renta with Oscar the Grouch
5) Francisco Costo with Grover
6) Carolina Herrera with Elmo
7) Kate and Laura Mulleavy with Cookie Monster
