Art of Fashion Award Celebration Dinner

The Timken Museum of Art and the David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, are hosting Art of Fashion 2014: A Design Competition. Eight graduate designers will create costumes inspired by the 1788 Thomas Gainsborough painting A Peasant Smoking at a Cottage Door. The painting is on extended loan to the Timken from UCLA’s Hammer Museum. 

International fashion icon and designer Zandra Rhodes and an honorary “pink list” committee comprised of fashion-forward and civic-minded ladies will judge the designs the week prior to the dinner. The winning designer will be presented with a scholarship award at the Art of Fashion Award Celebration dinner. During the reception, Oscar-nominated costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis, founding director of the Copley Center, will review the judging criteria. Guests will have the opportunity to examine the remarkable costumes,  created on half-scale dress forms, and to speak with the graduate designers about their inspiration and design process. Timken board member Lori Walton is a UCLA alumna and  her husband, Basketball Hall of Famer and UCLA All-American Bill Walton, are dinner co-chairs and will be in attendance.
