The planned CTANZ online series is rolling along, with the next installment this week already: Tuesday 10 May 7-8pm, Imogen Stockwell, curator of Maritza Boutique: Ōamaru – London, will talk about the exhibition at the Forrester Gallery until 3 July. The gallery’s site and these Otago Daily Times articles will whet your appetite for this presentation: contact us if you need the Zoom address.
That’s the at-home viewing for this week, but this is also your heads-up about other opportunities to check out fashion and textiles coming to big screens near many of us very shortly. It’s time again for the annual Resene Architecture & Design Film Festival. Now showing in Auckland but coming too to Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, and Havelock North, the design side of this year’s lineup includes the late addition of Quant (for those of us who didn’t get to Auckland for the exhibition) and Finnish style with Maija Isola, Master of Colour and Form, on the career of the creator of Marimekko’s signature Unikko design.
Also coming to cinemas this month and later in the year are two films featuring Dior. The first of these is the contemporary Haute Couture, scheduled for later in May. The other is a new adaptation of Paul Gallico’s gorgeous novel, Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, with Lesley Manville as Mrs Harris – no dates currently available.
