Films for Frockistas #3 - The First Monday in May
Third in a series of Sunday arvo get-togethers to watch documentaries and talk frocks, fabrics and fashion. All people who love to sew and other fabric appreciators welcome.
On Sunday 15th May we'll be screening The First Monday in May 2015 Andrew Rossi (1h 30m)
About the film:
The Making of the Met Gala. Each year, on the first Monday in May, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York opens its doors to host the biggest event on the fashion calendar, The Met Gala, the opening night party to the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibition.
THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY follows Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, as they orchestrate the year’s most lavish party and The Met’s fashion exhibition, ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’. With unprecedented access, filmmaker Andrew Rossi offers an exclusive all-access pass to the creation of the exhibition that explores China’s substantial influence on Western fashion.

About Films for Frockistas
Once a week during May/June we're having a Sunday arvo session at Songlines for frockistas and frockaholics. Join like-minded peeps to watch a film, share nibbles and sewing tips. You can bring what you're working on for show and tell.
We have set aside 2.5 hrs in the Songlines Experience Space for it. The space is air-conditioned, has a large screen and excellent sound system.
Songlines is open from 3.30 pm.
The screening will start at 4.00 pm.
On the program over coming weeks are iconic documentaries including McQueen.
What to bring
We have bench seats, please bring your own chair and/or cushion if you'd like a bit more comfort. You are welcome to bring your own drinks/nibbles too. We'll be providing some too.
Who is putting this together
This is a Songlines project in collaboration with Flying Fox Fabrics & Darwin Frocktails.
