Celebrating 100 years of filmmaking, this course explores the evolving role of the costume designer from silent films to superheroes, via the Golden Age of Hollywood. We will discuss the importance of television costume design for the variety shows of the 1970s and the significance of costume in creating the V&A's Diva exhibition. Hear interviews with leading costume designers and expert speakers.
Learn from our world-class experts wherever you are, whenever suits you: watch lectures live or view the recording later in your own time. You can experience the full breadth and depth of the V&A's collections with 12 hours of study over 6 weeks. Learn at your own pace: lecture recordings and study materials, lecture notes, copies of the presentations, and additional study materials are available in our secure Microsoft Teams environment for 6 weeks after the course ends, so you'll never miss a thing. And finally, join the conversation: share your perspective with your fellow students, and support each other in your further enquiries outside of class time.
