Fashion and film have a shared history as long as motion pictures themselves. This 15-session class will demonstrate how we can learn about the fashion industry through the silver screen. Each class will be devoted to topics such as: presenting fashion news; mythologizing the fashion designer; major Hollywood costume designers and their influence off-screen; fashion fairytales, and the life of the model. Clips will be presented during the course of the class to lead discussion, and further titles will be recommended for further viewing.


Dr. Julia Petrov is the Curator of Daily Life and Leisure at the Royal Alberta Museum. She also teaches at the Department of Human Ecology at the University of Alberta. Her specialization is in the history and display of fashion. She has taught for ELLA in previous years.
