“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy will present the career achievement in television nod to two-time Emmy Award nominee Eyrich, who started her career touring with music artists such as the Manhattan Transfer, Prince and Bette Midler. She was later drawn into film and television, where she has spent over two decades designing projects such as “Popular” and “Nip/Tuck.” In 2010 and 2011, Eyrich received the Costume Designers Guild Award for contemporary TV series for her work on “Glee.”

The Costume Designers Guild will also acknowledge Western Costume’s centennial anniversary with a special service award, reflecting the company’s 100 years of professional contributions from the silent era to the present, as well as its continuous support of the guild.

Emmy winner and “Glee” star Jane Lynch will host the ceremony.
