Let's go to this talk that is a tie-in to FIT's soon-to-be-mounted Elegance in the Age of Crisis: Fashions of the 1930s. The talk is titled, "Dressing Divinely: 1930s Hollywood Costume/Couture".
Here's what the website says: "Join Scott F. Stoddart, dean of FIT's School of Liberal Arts and author of Analyzing Mad Men, as he examines the lives and the creations of Hollywood costume designers of the 1930s. Stoddart's analysis reveals the close connection between the elegance created on screen by designers such as Adrian, Edith Head, and Muriel King, and the desires of the American middle class."
The admission for this event is FREE, but you MUST rsvp on their site. Just rsvping here isn't enough. You can do this at https://museumatfit.secure.force.com/ticket#sections_a03G000000k1XYoIAM
There is also our own $1 meetup fee, payable to the Meetup organizer, me.
How to meet us: We're meeting at 5:30pm in the space where the talk is held, the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre in the building listed above, for a 6pm talk; they may not seat until 5:45. Join us there or else on line waiting to get into that space. I will be holding a handwritten sign that says MEETUP.
