As an educator and historian, I am often invited to participate in events and speaking engagements, especially to give presentations on the HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM from the 1920s to 1980s. 

Of course all my events are announced via GlamAmor's Facebook and Twitter pages along with other events of interest around the country relating to the history of film, costume design, and fashion.

Series starts Sunday, June 30
THE STYLE OF SIN 1930-1934:

Talks start at 1:00 pm 
followed by double features of films

Guest speaker
Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood, CA

The Pre-Code era of Hollywood refers to the years between 1930 when the Production Code was adopted and 1934 when it was in full effect. The Code prohibited seeing many sins on screen, so Pre-Code films are beloved for how risqué and provocative they could be with their look and content.

Join me for this 6-part series that introduces you to some of the most popular actresses of the Pre-Code era - Barbara Stanwyck, Kay Francis, Jean Harlow, Carole Lombard, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Blondell, and Joan Crawford. Each event will begin with one of my presentations followed by a double feature of films. There will be one event per month. 

Though costume design is important in film, it is particularly significant to the plot and production of the movies selected for this series. In each talk, you will also learn about the costume designers themselves - how they contributed to the style of the studios along with the evolution of the actresses' careers and personal style.
