There will be a study day called ‘Costume and Image’ on 17 November, at the Art Workers Guild, to coincide with the V&A ‘Hollywood Costume’ exhibition. This ground-breaking exhibition includes over a hundred of the most iconic and unforgettable film characters from a century of Hollywood filmmaking between 1912 an 2012. Hollywood Costume takes us on a three-gallery journey from Charlie Chaplin through the Golden Age of Hollywood to the cutting edge design for Avatar (2009, Costume Designer Deborah L. Scott, Mayes Rubio) and John Carter of Mars (2012, Costume Designer Mayes Rubio):
Keith Lodwick, one of the curators, has just agreed to give a lecture the other lecturers are presently being arranged. Keith Lodwick trained as a set and costume designer at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London and has designed over thirty stage productions including the award-winning ‘The Bloody Chamber’ by Angela Carter.
