Exploring the impact of 18th century issues today and beyond.

We are so excited to announce our next Salon Series guest ~ Nathalie Atkinson.

Cinderella Story: The Fashion Fairytale on Screen
An Illustrated Talk
When Charles Perrault published his version of the fairytale Cinderella; or, The Little Glass Slipper in 1697, he added a famous footwear detail that continues to resonate in pop culture both figuratively and literally. Join culture journalist Nathalie Atkinson, host of film series Designing the Movies, columnist for The Globe and Mail, and contributor to Zoomer, BBC Culture, FASHION, and ELLE Canada, for an illustrated talk about how the screen has embraced and reinterpreted the folk tale and its fashion tropes. From silent film era stars and animation to urbane tales of social mobility and of course, Audrey Hepburn’s many makeovers.

Exploring the impact of 18th century issues today and beyond, as featured in our exhibition The Great Divide, we hope you can join us as Nathalie sits down (virtually) with Creative Director & Senior Curator Elizabeth Semmelhack on November 25th, 2020.
