Hollywood Haute Couture

plus Film-Inspired Live Fashion Show!

Presented by Michael van den Bos

Panorama | Vancity Theatre Screening

Hollywood and fashion fit together like Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy. It’s one of the things we love about the movies, the elegant enthrall of sartorial splendor on the silver screen. In Hollywood Haute Couture , film scholar Michael van den Bos has designed a sparkling spring collection of chic clips that represents the world of fashion in film. From classic musicals, comedies and dramas, Michael will introduce a runway of cinema’s most stylish stars in scenes where the fashion is the story.

As a special treat within this program, feast your eyes on a live fashion show by internationally renowned Vancouver fashion designer Roxanne Nikki, who has curated a cinematic-inspired presentation of her most fatally seductive works. Make-up and hairstyling provided by Denise Meikle, award-winning Vancouver hairstylist and owner of Salon Origins hair studio.

In the atrium, costume historians Professor Ivan Sayers and Claus Jahnke will be presenting several exquisite garments.
Ivan Sayers lectures at SFU and in Vancouver's design schools. He has one of the finest private collections in Canada of period clothing, beginning in the 18th century. He will bring two dresses from Barbara Stanwyck’s private wardrobe, one coat which belonged to Pola Negri in her retirement and some camisoles and petticoats worn by Julie Christie in McCabe and Mrs. Miller.
Claus Jahnke, collector/curator of Austrian and German clothing, produced the exhibit "Broken Threads," at the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre some years ago which was based on an aspect of his rare collection. This evening he shares a dress worn by the German actress Heidi Scharf in the 1947 film, And the Heavens Above Us.
