World-renowned costumes designer Anna Lombardi, who has worked on movies including Gangs of New York, The Aviator, and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, illustrates the unique craft of costume design by examining the structure and methodology of the work and expertise it entails.

As part of this lecture, she will take us through a journey behind the scenes analysing the costumes designed for a film set in the 1950s.Photographs and film clips will be shown from Voice From The Stone (2017) directed by Eric D. Howell. The reciprocal influence between fashion and cinema will be highlighted, as well as the close relationship the costume designer has with the make-up and hair stylists, the cinematographer and the director.
