EYES ON COSTA: The jury is in for this year’s National Design Awards and Francisco Costa is said to be the winner for fashion. Staffers at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, which present the awards annually, were tight-lipped about the 2009 finalists and winners that will be unveiled Friday. Ralph Rucci, Michael Maharam, architect Marc Tsurumaki, Antenna Design’s Sigi Moeslinger, Office dA’s Monica Ponce de Leon, Google’s Marissa Mayer and YouTube’s Margaret Stewart were some of this year’s jurors. Meanwhile, during Costa’s visit to the “Martha Stewart Show,” set to air this Friday, Stewart tottered in on a pair of gleaming camel Calvin Klein block heels, winning the designer’s praise. Stewart said she liked them, too “if you stand. But if you try to walk...” The show takes viewers into the Calvin Klein atelier and demonstrates the making of origami pleats. Costa exhibited a different kind of artistry in Stewart’s kitchen, where he demonstrated how to make two kinds of caipirinhas (passion fruit and ginger) from his native Brazil.
