You're invited! HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1960s-1970s at Annenberg Beach House

If you love style in the movies and live in Los Angeles, you are invited to a special evening to learn all about it.  On Tuesday, December 17th, I'll be presenting THE STYLE ESSENTIALS: HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1960s - 1970s at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica.  You are invited!

The Style Essentials represent iconic costume design in the movies from the 1920s to the 1970s that immediately impacted fashion and continues to influence the industry today.  This is an abbreviated version of the HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM course I teach at Woodbury University and the third in the series I've given at Annenberg.  Our upcoming time together will focus on the style icons from the last days of the Golden Age of Hollywood.  Stills from the movies along with images from today's fashion industry are accompanied by a discussion of the costumes, costume and fashion designers, stars, and film backstories.  You will also see a selection of vintage clothing that shows something of the trickle-down effect of costume design on street style during the 1960s and 1970s.

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 this is the former beachfront estate of William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies, who was at the social center of Old Hollywood from its very inception.  The greatest style stars of all time--Greta! Marlene! Joan! Jean!--all stayed and played at the Beach House.  In fact, the original Guest House and pool still stand.  Come early and you can join the special docent tour for attendees 5:15 - 6:15 PM. 

This series is very popular--the last two events have sold out--so be sure to sign up soon.  Registration closes on November 19th.  Can't wait to see you there!

Kimberly - Your class should be a great introduction to the style essentials of this time period as reflected and influenced by film, as you appropriately entitle it. I'm sure it will be both highly informative and entertaining.

Thanks so much, Christian! That means a lot coming from you. You're always with me in spirit. :)

Sounds like a wonderful series. I'm sure it will be a smashing success. But you'll be sharing some highlights on your blog, yes?

If I lived in the LA area, I would attend these ALL the time! :)

Yes, Silver Screenings, I will definitely share some highlights on GlamAmor. But even more exciting is that I am just about to announce the launch of my webinar series--the HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM from the 1920s to 1970s. I created it in response to all the friends in classic film and fashion who live outside the Los Angeles area (and even some in LA--traffic is a nightmare! lol) You'll be able to sign up for one or all of them. The first for the 1920s will kick off on November 10th!
