The Paley Center For Media Presents Behind the Seams: Fashion and TV

From Olivia Pope’s white coat to Carrie Bradshaw’s enviable collection of Manolo Blahnik shoes, TV has often been the platform that influences public perception on what constitutes as fashion. To celebrate this, The Paley Center for Media will assemble some of the most influential voices in fashion for an intimate discussion on the relationship between TV and fashion in Behind the Seams: Fashion and TV. This final program in the Paley Center’s Fall 2017 season will take place on December 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

Joanna Coles, chief content officer, Hearst Magazines; Nina Garcia, ELLE editor-in-chief and Project Runway judge; and acclaimed fashion designer, cookbook author, and Project Runway judge Zac Posen will discuss the ways in which they have used television to inform the audience about the nuts and bolts of fashion as both an industry and art form, and the effect these television programs have had on culture and the fashion industry itself.

“Television has long served as the vehicle on what influences culture and conversation, so it’s only natural this includes fashion,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO.  “We’re thrilled to select Behind the Seams as the grand finale to our incredible fall season, and look forward to what will be an informative and stylish conversation.”
