My interest in film, costume and costume designers includes a wide-breadth of historical research for number of large projects, including work on Natacha Rambova, Busby Berkeley costumes, and stemming from research for a conference presentation. Additionally, work assisting former costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis with an exhibition and several books, as well as working as an assistant to Film Noir Foundation president, Eddie Muller (and Director of several Film Noir festivals) broadened and expanded my interest in film. Consequently, I frequently produce articles on various aspects of film costume history for the blog, Worn Through.
