The lecture and PowerPoint presentation will be given by Linda Carcaci Solorzano, a designer of theatrical clothing for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the late Joan Rivers, and world-renowned films, magazine covers and celebrities, along with her business partner Susan Handler Wakefield. They are the owners of Creative Costume Company in New York City.

With Mardi Gras looming, Linda and Susan will provide deep insights into the drama of costume. They will discuss designing for the industry and for individuals from idea to finished product, and will bring costumes and sketches to support the presentation.

Linda and Susan received their Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design from Drexel University. These former college roommates combined their design talents in 1982 to open Creative Costume Company in New York City and introduced a personalized concept of costume design to the theatrical world.

Light refreshments will be available following the presentation. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and talk with the designers.
