Discussion The Secret of Big and Little Edie: Grey Gardens and the World of Fashion

Special screening: Grey Gardens
7 June 2018


Fashion journalists and critics will gather before the screening of Grey Gardens to discuss the documentary shown as part of Garage’s program with Beat Film Festival.

Released in 1975, Grey Gardens follows the everyday lives of Jackie Kennedy’s aunt and cousin living in seclusion and poverty in a small house on Long Island. The picture, which revolutionized documentary film, remains a key work for people who work fashion. The speakers will discuss the fashion legacy of the film and why it remains a major source of inspiration for stylists and photographers.

Discussion is supported by The Blueprint
