Saturday 24th October: Filming Fashion: Fashioning Film

10:00-19:00, The Bowes Museum. £65.00 per person.

Coinciding with the UK exclusive exhibition, Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal, this one-day symposium brings together scholars and practitioners to consider the dynamic, mutually reinforcing relationship between fashion and film. The symposium, convened by The Bowes Museum and Durham University’s Centre for Visual Arts and Culture, will consider how film influences trends in fashion, and vice versa, how fashion (and the history of fashion) is captured on film, and how the presence of fashion affects cinematic culture.
In addition to keynote addresses from Alistair O’Neill and Professor Stella Bruzzi FBA and roundtable discussions on YSL and Film and New Directions in Fashion and Film Studies, participants will be invited to a private viewing of the YSL exhibition and a screening of Yves Saint Laurent, directed by Jalil Lespert. The symposium will also showcase several projects on fashion and film by early career researchers.

All welcome. Registration necessary. To book a place, please email:symposium@thebowesmuseum.org.uk
