Free Flick and Fashion Talk

When: Mon., Feb. 20 2012

You can get your fashion fix tonight at Case Western Reserve’s Baker-Nord Center, with a 6 p.m. screening of Bill Cunningham New York, followed by a discussion with two fashion historians. The film focuses on Cunningham, a New York Times photog who has been documenting street fashions since the late 1970s. As our reviewer said this spring, the eccentric Cunningham “appears to spend every waking moment in the streets, in the Times offices obsessively organizing his page, and running around to events at night. [Yet] in scene after scene, he looks like he’s still having more fun than anybody else in the room.” Afterward, stick around for stylish conversation with Jean Druesedow, director of the Kent State University Museum, and William Perrine of KSU’s Fashion School. It’s free and open to the public, although registration is suggested via the website.
