  2. Thanks for doing this.

    I'd like to add Greg York, the lead costume designer for The Young & the Restless, ca. 1990-93, the man behind the show's classic Masquerade Ball in 1991.

    Here's a nice interview with Melody Thomas Scott on her relationship with Mr. York and the impact his death had on her from Art & Understanding magazine:

    Oh My God!
