3 SUPER THE DARK CANDY EVENTS HAVE MADE THIS MONTH EXTRAORDINARY

3 cities, 3 relevant partners, 6 costume designers: these are the numbers of the 3 super events organized by The Dark Candy, protagonists of which were big costume designers.

October 2019 has been an extraordinary month for The Dark Candy: we’ve organized 3 memorable events, 3 amazing ”meet the public” where people, journalists, students an movie lovers got the chance to meet big costume designers.

And we did it in partnership with 3 relevant partners.

On 7 October, in Milan, costume designer Sanja Hays (Captain Marvel, Star Trek Beyond, Fast & Furious, Maze Runner) talked about the new female superheroes of Hollywood and about her amazing job as costume designer, in an exclusive talk moderated by The Dark Candy’s Sakis Lalas and Valentina De Giorgi.

The talk was organized in partnership with Arrigo Costumi, an historical costume house where the art of making costumes has been handed down over three generations.

On 9 October we recreate an old Hollywood (or rather, new Hollywood) atmosphere in Thessaloniki. In the beautiful setting of the cinema-theater Olympion, we had a night dedicated to legendary costume designer Anthea Sylbert (Shampoo, King Kong, Rosemary’s Baby, twice Oscar nominated for Chinatown and Julia): a special screening of the movie Rosemary’s Baby, followed by a Q&A moderated by The Dark Candy’s Sakis Lalas and Valentina De Giorgi, where Sylbert herself talked about the costumes she designed for the movie and about her collaboration and friendship with director Roman Polanski.

The event was organized in partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, this year at its 60th edition.

3 città, 3 partners d’eccezione, 6 costume designers: questi i numeri dei 3 super eventi organizzati da The Dark Candy, protagonisti dei quali sono stati grandi costume designers.

Ottobre 2019 è stato per The Dark Candy un mese indimenticabile: abbiamo organizzato tre eventi memorabili, tre incontri in cui abbiamo portato grandi costume designers a contatto con il pubblico. E lo abbiamo fatto con tre partner d’eccezione.

Il 7 ottobre, a Milano, la costume designer Sanja Hays (Captain Marvel, Star Trek Beyond , Fast & Furious, Maze Runner) ha parlato delle nuove supereroine di Hollywood e del fantastico lavoro del costume designer, in una talk esclusiva moderata da Sakis Lalas e Valentina De Giorgi di The Dark Candy.

La talk è stata organizzata in partnership con Arrigo Costumi, sartoria storica dove l’arte della creazione dei costumi si tramanda da tre generazioni.

Il 9 ottobre abbiamo ricreato un’atmosfera da old Hollywood (o meglio, new Hollywood) a Salonicco: nella splendida cornice del cinema-teatro Olympion, abbiamo dedicato una serata alla leggendaria costume designer Anthea Sylbert (Shampoo, King Kong, Rosemary’s Baby, due nomination agli Oscar per Chinatown e Julia) con uno special screening del film Rosemary’s Baby, seguito da un Q&A moderato da Sakis Lalas e Valentina De Giorgi di The Dark Candy, in cui la stessa Sylbert ha raccontato la genesi dei costumi del film e la sua collaborazione con Roman Polanski.

La serata è stata organizzata in partnership con il Thessaloniki International Film Festival, quest’anno giunto alla sua 60a edizione.

Il 23 ottobre, infine, abbiamo organizzato un evento unico, rafforzando la nostra fama di pionieri nel nostro campo: un panel sul costume design e sull’impatto che i costumi hanno sulla nostra società, moda e cultura, per i giornalisti dell’Associazione della Stampa Estera di Roma.
