GlamAmor Events


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. There are also recordings of my 6-part webinar series with one class per decade, which you can view online.  

Of course all my events are always 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.

See below for any upcoming events. Visit GlamAmor Events to see past appearances.


Sunday, September 24
THE HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM NOIR

3:00 - 5:00 pm

Guest speaker
Light & Noir: Exiles and Emigrés in Hollywood 1933-1950 exhibition
California Museum
Sacramento, CA

Wartime America bore witness to shortages of common fashion materials ranging from silk to rubber. Even with rationing and restrictions imposed on the entire country, film costume designers still managed to create some of the most iconic looks of all time. These costumes not only defined the film noir genre and much of 1940s style, but continue to influence our fashion today. Join me for an illustrated lecture of film noir style and the evolution of fashion in America as innovated by the great costume designers of Hollywood.

Tickets are $15 ($5 for museum members) and include admission to the exhibit.

For tickets and more information, visit the California Museum website.

Join the FIDM Museum for the opening of Thierry Mugler: Alien to Angel, an exhibition exploring the unconventional and otherworldly work of Parisian fashion designer Thierry Mugler.

In my talk, I will share the classic films and costume designers whose work directly inspired Mugler. You'll see images of those movies followed by examples from his own collections - on runways, red carpets, and film - that illustrate that influence.
