The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Fashion Resource Center maintains a unique hands-on collection of late twentieth and twenty-first century designer garments and accessories representative of extreme innovation.

Operating as usual



Join us for a unique free event open to the public and SAIC’s community. Ten years before its 1999 release, filmmaker Tom Neff set out to explore Louise Dahl-Wolfe’s legacy; an overlooked figure who revolutionized the rules of fashion photography. Today his film offers the only surviving footage of Dahl-Wolfe, whom he interviewed before her death in 1989. Twenty-three years have passed since the short documentary aired on PBS. Its screening at the Gene Siskel Film Center is an opportunity to reconsider and center Dahl-Wolfe’s contributions to fashion photography. The 25-minute screening will be followed by a 30-minute visually immersive talk with the film’s director Tom Neff and editor Barry Rubinow. A joint program of SAIC Fashion Resource Center, Fashion Department & Fashion Council.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 29,2022, 6:00pm-7:00pm
WHERE: Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St.

LINK to the event on the Gene Siskel’s website.
