Fashion expert Karen Antonowicz will give a virtual presentation this evening called "The Golden Age of Hollywood." Fashion on the silver screen during the 30's, 40's, and 50's 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. Finally, the 1950's movies continued to show elegant fashions that were inspiring to the audiences of that period, but the advent of television caused fashion influences 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.
