Costumes are an essential element of any film production and are pivotal to the mise-en-scene of a film. Costumes give us insights into the characters they clothe, the society that they are a part of, and the relevance of the two in the film’s larger cultural milieu. Not only do costume designers, who work hidden behind the camera, have to make sure that their designs are historically accurate or contemporaneous, they also have to make sure that the costuming is evocative of a character’s moods and personality. They must tell a silent story and build an atmosphere all while creating memorable couture.

Avid Learning and Italian Embassy Cultural Centre in association with Vogue India will present a first of its kind panel discussion titled “Cine Couture: Costuming For The Camera”. Chairing the discussion will be award-winning Italian costume designer Daniela Ciancio who will be making her maiden visit to the sub-continent and national award-winning Bollywood couturier Neeta Lulla in conversation with Vogue India Editor-in-Chief Priya Tanna. From cross-cultural comparisons between American, Italian, and Indian cinema, the evening will witness a discussion on processes and production of costume design, its role as a cinematic device and its larger part in shaping cultural ideologies.

Daniela Ciancio who is the ambassador selected for Mumbai and has designed the costumes of films like La Grande Bellezza and Il Divo amongst others.

Neeta Lulla who is currently working on Manikarnika and Panipat states, “A designer’s work exists to actualize the screenplay, defining the people and the places, a marriage of concept and imagery. That’s why costume designers are called the language of film design. The substance of costume design isn’t just the designing of original garments but creating multiple masterpieces from scratch to compliment the sensibilities of not just one person but a cast and crew of over 5000 people. We support the narrative by creating authentic characters and we provide balance within the frame by using color, texture, and silhouette by painting each frame of the film.” Read more
