Walter Plunkett, a man responsible for hundreds of celebrated designs in more than 260 films over a forty-year period, is not a household name. Plunkett’s career as a self-taught costume designer included one of the most iconic film costumes of all time: Scarlett O’Hara’s Curtain Dress. Yet, the question remains why Walter Plunkett has not achieved the same prominence as his peers. Join us as Joanna Abijaoude, Museum Associate at the FIDM Museum, brings Walter Plunkett’s legacy out from behind the shadows and illustrates why his work made a lasting and relevant impact in the world of costume design.

PMH’s Textile Arts Council is proud to partner with the curatorial staff of the FIDM Museum at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Los Angeles to present a three-part lecture series featuring fashions throughout the decades.
