Fashion in Film
April 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
There’s no question that costume design contributes to the ongoing legacy of classic cinema, so join me to take a look at the Fashion in Film of TCMFF 2019.
In what is now an annual talk, the presentation features about 10 films from the festival’s programming and delves into the stories behind their style. It includes movie stills and images from today’s fashion accompanied by a conversation about film history, costume and fashion designers, and backstories of the stars.
Most know that costume design is often integral to plot lines and always helps establish character. In addition, many of the leading ladies were close with their costume designers, so you can get great insights into their lives and see the evolution of their style. You’ll also discover how these costumes continue to influence fashion today.
