The Golden Age of Hollywood Fashion- A Zoom Program

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Fashion on the silver screen during the ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s was not only glamorous and influential, but also was enjoyed as an “escape” from the problems of each decade. In the depression era, folks could attend the movies as a way to forget their current circumstances, while the films served as both escapism and news reporting during the long years of World War II. The 1950s movies continued to show elegant fashions but the advent of television caused fashion influence to be split between the silver screen and the smaller TV in America’s homes. Join us as we travel through these fascinating decades and enjoy a glimpse into the glamour of that golden age. Our presenter is Karen (Ren) Antonowicz, who has a Master’s Degree in Textiles, Fashion Merchandising and Design, with a concentration in Historic Costume & Textiles from the University of RI.
