A History of Fashion in Film with Kimberly Truhler: 1920s-1930s
Monday, November 12, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
Santa Monica, United States
5:15-6:15pm Docents available to discuss the site at the Marion Davies Guest House
Fashion historian and designer Kimberly Truhler discusses film costume, focusing on the early years of the Hollywood film industry and the female style icons that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s. Stills from the movies and images from fashion runways accompany a discussion of the designers whose work with stars like Gloria Swanson, Louise Brooks, Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow and Marlene Dietrich continue to influence fashion and design today.
With over 20 years studying costume design, Kimberly Truhler is regarded an expert by cineastes and fashionistas – both Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) have called upon her services. She has written extensively on the history of fashion in film for her website GlamAmor and will be teaching the subject as a Professor at Woodbury University this spring. Drawing upon her knowledge of fashion past and present, and informed by her love of cinema style, Truhler operates a boutique offering a vintage collection as well as a new retail line of luxury casual clothing called “Time & Silence”.
