Capitol Couture: Fashion, Spectacle and Struggle in The Hunger Games

A look at how high-end designer fashion is used both on and off-screen to lure audiences into consuming branded goods.


Capitol Couture: Fashion, Spectacle and Struggle in The Hunger Games
Dr Sarah Gilligan

Thursday 19 February, 6.30pm
Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndŵr University, Mold Road, Wrexham LL11 2AW

From Katniss Everdeen’s chunky hand-knitted sweater vest, to Effie Trinket’s outrageous couture dresses and designer shoes, fashion plays a key role in constructing and performing on-screen identities in the Hunger Games films. A look at how the seductive spectacle of high-end designer fashion is used both on and off-screen to lure audiences into desiring and consuming a range of branded goods.

Part of The Tales we Tell, a month-long collaborative project featuring a mix of ‘in-situ’ art, video installations, workshops, music, and invited talks, revolving around the broad concept of tales told and re-told, altered, translated, reinterpreted, critiqued, celebrated.

Booking not necessary. This event is free to attend and open to all.
