Visionary Form: Dressing Up for the Screen

January 14 to March 25

Special guests and showtimes to be announced.

The most iconoclastic collaborations between great filmmakers and designers show how fashion and film can synthesize onscreen to rapturous results, adding dimensions of light, rhythm, performer personality, and the poetry of motion to the palette, texture, and geometry of costume. Every Sunday from January through March, with a special double feature during Fashion Week, Metrograph and M2M will be paying tribute to these high triumphs of style, drawing inspiration from actress-muses who transformed their wardrobe with their individual flair both onscreen and off, including Kim Novak, Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, and the inimitable Katharine Hepburn.

From femme fashion plate to tough tomboy—in a perfect pantsuit or a Valentino dress—Kate was possessed of a remarkably changeable, always recognizable, and at times downright revolutionary on-screen persona, matched by her radical, sui generis style. This series celebrates fashion-conscious superstars and auteurs, as well as an ensemble of creators ranging from Edith Head, Yves Saint Laurent, to Yohji Yamamoto, all of whom understood that the clothes make the character.
