Fashion curation explores ways to tell stories with clothing. Constructing a narrative with an exhibition that has multiple elements requires consideration of layers of research and information. This event, presented by NJ Stevenson brings together film costume and fashion curation professionals to speak about their practices and discuss the processes and challenges of curating and making an exhibition about period film costume and fashion.
This evening event features three experts in the field of film costume collecting, design, and curating:
John Bright started the costume house, Cosprop, in 1965, a leading costumier to the film, television and stage industries.
Vicki Russell is a costume designer who learnt her trade at her mother’s knee. The daughter of the director Ken Russell and costume designer Shirley Russell.
Dennis Nothdruft is Head Curator at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum, which was founded in 2003 by Zandra Rhodes.
