From Stitches to Screen: Fashion Seminar day in association with The Bronte Parsonage
This one-day seminar hosted by Calderdale Museums and the Brontë Parsonage Museum seeks to examine how historic costumes in museum collections are used as inspiration for film and TV dramas. It will consider such topics as what costume on screen can tell us about characters and the role of costume designers, historians and historical consultants can have on shaping the public’s view of costume and history.
There will be a range of speakers from academic, fashion, television and design backgrounds.
There will be opportunity to have a closer examination of historic costume in the collection at Bankfield Museum and tours of the new ‘As Seen on TV’ exhibition featuring costumes from some of Britain’s best loved TV dramas including Pride and Prejudice, Poldark, Downton Abbey and Victoria.
