Events & Appearances


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 1970s. This is now also a 6-part webinar series with one online class per decade, which you can attend live or view the recordings later.  

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.
