If you love all things fashion and want to get a head-start in the industry, it’ll probably do you good to attend an interesting lecture presented by world-renowned Italian costume designer Anna Lombardi.
Also the vice president of ARTSCENICO, the European Federation for Costume and Production Design, Lombardi has worked on movies such as Gangs of New York, The Aviator and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
She will illustrate the unique craft of costume design in a special lecture at VCUarts Qatar in Education City on Tuesday November 5 at 12.30pm.
Lombardi’s lecture entitled Clothes vs Costumes will take you back to the ’50s where you can analyse the costumes that were designed for film sets, learn about the influences between fashion and cinema, as well as the relationships costume designers have with makeup and hair stylists, cinematographers and directors.
The event, which is open to the public, is part of Fare Cinema (Making Films) - The Italian Movie Industry, an initiative launched in 2018 by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to promote Made in Italy cinema with a focus on the film-making crafts.
Lombardi was nominated for best costume in the feature film category at the Premio di Berenice awards for the film titled Anita B by Roberto Faenza and in 2018 for best costume at the David di Donatello Awards (also known as the Italian Oscars) for the film Brutti e Cattivi.
It’s going to be an interesting and insightful talk.
Free. Nov 5, 12:30pm. Atrium, VCUarts Qatar, www.vcu.edu.
