Fashion and Celebrity in 1960s France
Katie Murphy Amphitheatre
Fashion Institute of Technology, New York City
Join Colleen Hill, curator of Paris Refashioned, 1957–1968, for a discussion of the influence of popular culture on 1960s French fashion. Through an examination of style icons such as Brigitte Bardot and Françoise Hardy, the 1966 Jean-Luc Godard film Masculin Féminin, and Elle magazine, Hill will show how the overlap between music, films, and media helped to shape the dynamic fashion industry during this era.
