Melbourne's very own vintage fashion expert, Nicole Jenkins of Circa Vintage (and Author of Love Vintage) has been invited to present an exclusive talk at the ACMI as part of the immensely popularHollywood Costume exhibition.
Nicole Jenkins shares her passion and expertise in the history of fashion during this special one-off talk celebrating the iconic costumes worn by Marilyn Monroe during the "Golden Age of Hollywood".
Hollywood Costume at the ACMI (running until Sunday 18th August) explores the central role costume design plays in cinema storytelling. Bringing together the most iconic costumes from a century of filmmaking, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters in films from The Wizard of Oz (1939) to Titanic (1997), Ben-Hur (1959) to James Bond (2007).
