Winterthur to Open the Major New Exhibition Costuming THE CROWN

Posted: November 28, 2018 

The exhibition is the first global comprehensive exhibition of costumes from the first two seasons of the hit Netflix show

Winterthur, DE, November 5, 2018— From the dazzling gold of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation robe to the simple sophistication of Princess Margaret’s wedding dress, Costuming THE CROWN at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library will feature 40 iconic costumes from the beloved Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning drama The Crown. The Netflix Original series, produced by Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television, is a dramatized history of Queen Elizabeth II’s early reign, as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart. The exhibition will be on view in the Winterthur Galleries March 30, 2019–January 5, 2020.

Beginning with spectacle and pageantry, Costuming THE CROWN, reveals everything from the majesty of royal crowns and tiaras to the private looks worn by the royal family in the quiet moments behind the palace doors. This intriguing exhibition provides a behind-the-scenes look at how costume design is used to complement riveting drama, re-create history, and define characters from the footmen to the queen. Costuming THE CROWN at Winterthur will be the first global comprehensive exhibition of costumes from the first and second seasons of the series. Visitors can see how Emmy - and BAFTA-winning designers Michele Clapton and Jane Petrie worked painstakingly to be authentic in the detailing of everything from King George’s medals and military ribbons to Queen Elizabeth’s iconic dresses for royal tours.

Costuming THE CROWN explains the significance and importance of costume design to the story. Visitors will move through four sections in the exhibition, beginning with “Establishing Roles,” which explores the transformative nature of costume, looking at the ensembles worn for the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953. With these impressive garments, steeped in history, the young Princess Elizabeth takes on her new role and becomes the queen in much the same way the actors are transformed into their roles through costume.

Facebook Ads Best Practices

Posted: November 13, 2018

"Facebook ads are a great way to get the word out about your products and/or services. Facebook offers PPC and CPM ads. A PPC campaign is a pay-per-click campaign that you only pay when people click, while a CPM ad means that you pay a set amount for views. Both are good ways to run ads, but you’ll see that using CPM is a little better and easier.

Set Your Goals
Knowing why you're running a Facebook advertisement is important. You need to know what you hope the results are. Do you want to build your email list, sell an actual product or service, or something else?

Learn Facebook's Ads Manager
Facebook has a wonderful editor so you don't need to use any outside sources to create your ads. Use Ads Manager. It allows you to manage many different variations of the same advertisement and is very useful. 

Target Your Audience Carefully
When running any type of advertisement, it's important to understand who your audience is and what they want. On Facebook ads you can target your audience down to the exact person you want to see the advertisement; this is a huge leap forward in marketing for any business. Even though you're a home business, you can compete with bigger businesses due to these features."
