Love style in the movies? You’re invited to this segment of film and fashion historian Kimberly Truhler’s six-part series on “The Style Essentials: a History of Fashion in Film.”
2/7: Truhler's fifth talk focuses on the style icons from the 1960s, including Jean Seberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and Faye Dunaway.
The Fashion in Film series explores the iconic costume designs from the 1920s to the 1970s - the garments that transformed fashion from the films' premieres to today's fashion. Each evening includes one decade, with stills from the movies side by side with today's fashion, accompanied by a conversation about film history, costumes, designers, and the fascinating backstories of the stars.
Kimberly Truhler is an author, preservationist, and educator on the “History of Fashion in Film.” In 2009, Truhler founded her company GlamAmor, and has since written hundreds of articles on iconic costume design and its influence on fashion today. With more than twenty years studying film and costume design history, a decade curating vintage garments, and a long work history in LA’s Fashion District, she is much requested as a guest speaker around Southern California on film and costume topics. Truhler’s “History of Fashion in Film” was a popular course at Woodbury University in Los Angeles, and she is the go-to consultant on film fashion history for companies such as Turner Classic Movies (TCM), BBC Worldwide, Christie’s auction house, and Elle magazine. She currently manages marketing for three of Sony's movie channels. Two books are in the works—one a biography on costume designer Jean Louis and another on nearly a century of the History of Fashion in Film.
