Please join CSA Western Region members for an exclusive introduction to Hollywood Costume, given by the exhibition’s curator, Deborah Nadoolman Landis. The Academy Award®– nominated costume designer and founding director of UCLA’s David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design will introduce CSA WR members and guests to the exhibition, highlighting the world's most iconic costumes from the Golden Age of cinema to the present. Our group will then tour the exhibition independently.

After a break for an early dinner (on our own at one of many options in the Miracle Mile area), CSA Western Region members will reconvene for the Academy's "Two Sides of a Designer" lecture at 7:30pm, followed by a no-host cocktail mixer and festivities TBA. Registration details will be finalized after the New Year. Contact Leigh Wishner, Western Region Programs Co-Chair leigh.wishner@gmail.com for preliminary information.
