Don't miss "DesigningWoman: Edith Head at Paramount 1924 - 1967" open June 7 – August 17, 2014. An Edith Head costume collection from the Paramount Pictures Archive will be leaving Hollywood-for just the second time-to be shown exclusively at the Decorative Arts Center. Edith Head (1897-1981) is one of the most recognizable names in film fashion history. During her 60-year career she worked on over 1,000 films, garnered 35 Academy Award nominations and won 8-a record that still stands. During her unprecedented 43 years at Paramount Pictures, Edith Head designed many of the iconic costumes worn by Barbara Stanwyck, Loretta Young, Veronica Lake, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour-to name just a few. Formerly of Lancaster, Randall Thropp has worked off-Broadway, in television and feature films. Since 2003, he has been the costume archivist at Paramount Pictures.
