Hollywood Heritage & The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Present: Afternoon @ the Barn - Adrian, American Designer
On Sunday, March 24, 2019 Hollywood Heritage's own Richard Adkins will be presenting a program on the life and career of Gilbert Adrian, famed theatrical, film, and couturier designer.
Adrian Adolph Greenburg (March 3, 1903 September 13, 1959), widely known as Adrian, was an American costume designer whose most famous costumes were for "The Wizard of Oz" (including the famed ruby slippers) as well as hundreds of other Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer films between 1928 and 1941. He was usually credited onscreen with the phrase "Gowns by Adrian". Early in his career he chose the professional name Gilbert Adrian, a combination of his father's forename and his own.
On display will be memorabilia from Adrian's career, including childhood sketches, perfume, menswear and couturier fashions. Free parking is available directly adjacent to the museum in Hollywood Bowl Lot "D". Please join us for what is sure to be a fascinating and informative afternoon!
