6 Famous Quotes by Edith Head

We are so excited about the upcoming exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery - The Costume Designer: Edith Head & Hollywood. Here are some of Edith's famous quotes, which one is your favourite?

“Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady.”

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.”

“Fashion is a language. Some know it, some learn it, some never will - like an instinct.”

“A designer is only as good as the star who wears her clothes."

"Building a proper wardrobe is like building a home. Indeed, you should think of it like a home, because it is something you're going to live in. It must be comfortable and suit all your needs."

"What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person."

The exhibition is opening September 29 until January 21, 2018. It is exclusive to Bendigo, curated by Bendigo Art Gallery. Want to make it a weekend getaway? Click here for the official packages now.
