Fashion is a form of self-expression, but it’s also a reflection of artistic, social, cultural, economic, and political forces at any given time. Peppered with historical and contemporary examples from across pop culture, this new series from culture journalist Nathalie Atkinson will take us on a globe-trotting, time-traveling journey through fashion history. From the fashion plates of the French Royal Court to Gilded Age flappers and dandies, from Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress to the miniskirts of the Sixties, this will be a dynamic, thought-provoking survey of the major influences that have shaped Western fashion in the modern era—and how we still dress today.

Led by Nathalie Atkinson, arts journalist and contributing columnist to The Globe and Mail newspaper and Zoomer magazine. Nathalie was previously the National Post’s award-winning Style & Design editor and her writing has appeared widely, including CNN Style, Vulture, and BBC Culture. A fashion and cultural historian who explores art and design at the intersection of culture and commerce, Nathalie is also the creator and host of the monthly film series Designing the Movies.

Course registration: $69 (Hot Docs Members: $60, $48, Free)
