Role and display of Fashion and Costume in Cinema
My research focuses on the period between 19th - 21st centuries and studies relationships between cultural production, institutions and society. I am interested in a variety of media, forms and practices as well as public debates (historical and contemporary) around them; these are above all film, art, fashion and photography.
I am the Director and Curator of Fashion in Film, a collaborative research project which explores the mutual impact of fashion and film industries across the entire history of cinema. We regularly contribute to exhibitions, events and conferences, and hold our own major festivals every two years, hosted by such venues as BFI Southbank and Tate Modern in London, and the Museum of the Moving Image in New York. Our research and curation promotes a sustained interest in film as an invaluable tool for fashion historians, and at the same time focuses on the interpretation of film costume and styling, which have played a vital role in many aspects of cinema and film culture.
While costume and fashion are always the key focus for us, we increasingly encourage comparative studies between film & fashion and a wide range of disciplines - from literature, theatre and dance to art, photography, architecture and music.
