VERY SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER

JOHN PENNOYER, DESIGNER

Nationally respected costume designer John Pennoyer gave a wonderful presentation to the Guild.  He took us on an illustrated journey ranging from his costume designs for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, to the inspiration behind Lady Curzon’s vicereine coronation gown, the Peacock Dress designed by Jean-Philippe Worth and ended with illustrations for John’s upcoming costume designs for the 2017 Stratford production of A Winter’s Tale.  His humility, humour and creative genius delighted us all.
