Arkansas fashion designer, Rulli Torres, recently made a big statement during New York City Fashion Week by showcasing his designs and donating time for a special event called PLITZS NYC Fashion Show and Charity Fundraising Gala.  Funds were raised for YES!, a non-profit organization that was created to provide information, resources, and support for anyone that is affected by cancers of the liver.

Torres says of his participation,"I had a really close cousin and favorite uncle pass away from cancer in the last few years and I've always been interested in contributing to various causes.  I'm very honored to have been asked to participate in this event.  If in some small way it helps one cancer survivor feel beautiful then I'll be very happy."

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) — “Clean Lines, Open Spaces: A View of Mid-Century Modern Architecture,” a production of the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN), received three Emmys in the 2012 annual awards competition of the Mid-America Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

“There is no greater sense of satisfaction than being recognized by one’s talented peers in this industry, especially those who vote in the regional Emmy Awards competition,” AETN Director of Production Carole Adornetto said.

“Clean Lines, Open Spaces,” a documentary by AETN Senior Producer Mark Wilcken, explores mid-century modern architecture through a regional lens of the American south. The film details how international influences helped shape the built environment of Arkansas after World War II.

The one-hour film was recognized with an award for Best Cultural Documentary, and Wilcken received individual awards for Best Writing and Best Editing.
