37. The Biggest Little Fashion City: Interview with Denise Green

In this episode from our 2017 Costume Society of America Series, Joy talks to Dr. Denise Green, Director of the Cornell Costume and Textile Collection. Dr. Green discusses her curation process for the exhibition: The Biggest Little Fashion City: Ithaca & Silent Film Style. The 2016 show was "a multi-media exhibit of historic costume, ephemera, and silent film clips, all highlighting the intersection of fashion and film. Fashions worn by actresses like Irene Castle and Minnie Maddern Fiske will be on display, alongside examples of ready-to-wear garments and accessories inspired by the styles of silent film stars."
