by Tiziana Ferrero-Regis

6:30 p.m. Friday, July 30th

at the
Dante Alighieri Cultural Centre

Tiziana Ferrero-Regis will speak (in English) about the birth of Made in Italy. From the couture dress by Sorelle Fontana, made for the wedding of Linda Christian to Tyrone Power in 1949, to the rise to success of Giorgio Armani and Gianni Versace, the talk traces the history of Italian ingenuity in dressmaking through the presentation of beautiful images.

Tiziana Ferrero-Regis worked for many years in Milan in the fashion publishing industry and is currently Lecturer in Theory and History of Fashion at the Queensland University of Technology, Creative Industries Faculty. Her research interests are in the areas of Made in Italy, the fashion industry, the relationship between film and fashion, and fashion and copyright.
