Western Costume Company: The First 100 Years, A Story of Epic Proportions, Presented by the Costume Council
From the birth of Hollywood, Western Costume Company has been a part of the history of cinema. Celebrating its one hundredth year, Western Costume Company has dressed virtually every major star and costumed many of the greatest productions ever made—from Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz to Titanic and The Artist, as well as the television series Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, and Magic City.
Join costume designers Ellen Mirojnick (Liberace, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Basic Instinct) and Carol Ramsey (Surviving Picasso, Meet the Fockers, Mr. & Mrs. Bridge, Magic City) for a panel discussion with costume supervisor Jim Tyson (Mission Impossible—Ghost Protocol, Thor, Top Gun), and Western Costume Company’s renowned artisans, milliner Harry Rotz and shoe and boot maker Mauricio Osario. The panel will be introduced by Western Costume Company’s president, Eddie Marks, and moderated by Bobi Garland, the company’s archivist and research library director.
The highlight of the evening will be a pageant, the first by Western Costume Company, featuring forty-two costumes of Hollywood’s most iconic films, including the green velvet dress from Gone with the Wind, as well as original, memorable costumes from Titanic, Chicago, and The Artist.
