Happy 7th Birthday, GlamAmor!


February has been so busy, but it's important for me to pause before the month is through to do a little celebrating. GlamAmor just turned 7! Though much of the brand started in late 2009, the website went live on February 8, 2010, so that is the milestone I mark each year.

As many of you know, my time is now split between managing marketing for three of Sony's movie channels and my own film history work for GlamAmor. But make no mistake - I always try to be an ambassador for classic cinema, and I am passionate about proving its ongoing relevance, particularly through the HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM. This past year has included the following opportunities for me to discuss its importance:

--Expert for a New York Post article on Oscar-nominated (and winning) costume design called "How Movies Changed the Way We Dress"
--Expert for a BBC Worldwide documentary on the glamorous legacy of seven actresses - from Clara Bow in the 1920s to Audrey Hepburn in the 1960s
--Expert for a documentary on the ARTE European Cultural Channel on costume designer Jean Louis and Marilyn Monroe
--Guest speaker for an ongoing series at the Annenberg Beach House on the THE STYLE ESSENTIALS: HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM 1920s-1980s (last talk in series coming in May)
--Host and producer of a video interview with Monika Henreid delving into the iconic style of NOW, VOYAGER and CASABLANCA as well as backstories of those films

Right around the corner on April 4 is yet another talk I'm giving. This one is supplemental to the TCM Classic Film Festival (TCMFF) and is called FASHION IN FILM OF TCMFF: SOPHISTICATED COMEDIES 1930s-1950s. It's already waitlist only, but I still encourage people to sign up. I'm so pleased how excited people are about the event. 

I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I love about classic film and hearing how people have been inspired to watch the movies after coming to my talks, taking my college class or online webinars, or watching my videos. I definitely want to be in front of the camera more.

I deeply appreciate everyone who continues to support my work and are as passionate about classic cinema and its influence as I am.  As always, it's just me trying to do it all--from the creative to the technological--and I do my best to remain connected to you.  This is why the GlamAmor network reaches so wide with this website (2.5 million+ visitors) and social media (10 channels including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Google+). I'm also working to bring back the e-newsletter on a more regular basis again.  

I love seeing so many of you join in the conversation. Thanks to all of you and I can't wait to see what 2017 will bring!
