Power Suit Yourself: Is the Power Suit Dead?

Part of the Glasgow Film Festival, was this little panel discussion, at the CCA on Saturday:

‘Since the heyday of shoulder pads in the 1940s, costume has been used to illustrate female power on screen. But when Sarah Lund’s woolly jumpers hit the headlines, did perceptions shift? A panel of guests will discuss wearable power and explore what this means today. The session will be illustrated by a presentation from students at the University of Edinburgh’s MSc Film Exhibition and Curation course.’
