For those who live in Los Angeles, you are invited to THE STYLE ESSENTIALS: HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1920s - 1930s! The Style Essentials represent iconic costume design in the movies from the 1920s to the 1970s that continues to influence fashion today. This is the first part of a much larger presentation I first did at FIDM at the end of the summer and has now expanded into a class I will be teaching as a Professor at Woodbury University this January. This evening will look at the start of the film industry and style icons through the glamorous age of Art Deco. Stills from the movies along with images from the fashion runways are accompanied by a discussion of the costumes, costume and fashion designers, stars, and film backstories.
Monday, November 12th
Marion Davies' former beachfront estate
6:30 - 8:00 PM
FREE to the public, but you must RSVP
$5 parking for attendees
The venue is perfect for the presentation since Marion Davies was at her height during the 1920s and 1930s, and nearly all of these women were her friends and stayed and played at the Beach House. In fact, the original Guest House and pool still stand! Come early and join the special docent tour for attendees 5:15 - 6:15 PM. Hope to see you there!
