You're Invited! August 16 Online Event Celebrates the Style of THE HITCHCOCK BLONDES

My monthly online events continue in August, and this time we'll be celebrating the 1950s and beyond with GlamAmor-ous Conversations: The Hitchcock Blondes! The great Edith Head returns - played by the incomparable Susan Claassen - in order to delve into the costume designer's three decade partnership with director Alfred Hitchcock.


GlamAmor-ous Conversations: The Hitchcock Blondes

Sunday, August 16
Starting at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET

Tickets are $15 - click to register on Zoom

Love the look of the icy cool blondes who were adored by director Alfred Hitchcock? Learn the stories behind the style from film and fashion historian Kimberly Truhler and Hollywood's iconic costume designer Edith Head - with a little help from actress Susan Claassen.

Join Truhler as she sits down once again with "Edith" to discuss her years working with Hitchcock and the signature style of his heroines, including:

Grace Kelly
Doris Day
Kim Novak
Tippi Hedren

Actress Susan Claassen has traveled the globe with her award-winning one-woman show A Conversation with Edith Head. Tours of the production have taken her across the U.S. and internationally from Toronto to Tbilisi, including an acclaimed five-week run in London’s West End. Claassen plays the part of Edith Head so well she is often mistaken for the legendary costume designer even by those who knew her.

Edith Head (1897 - 1981) was the most prolific costume designer in Hollywood history. She was also the most awarded - receiving an unprecedented 8 Oscars® and 35 nominations in her career. In addition to contributing to some of the most memorable moments on the silver screen, Edith also influenced fashion with many of her designs.

**Half the proceeds to to Arizona's Invisible Theatre, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year!

Upcoming events can be found on the GlamAmor Events page.
