Scarlett O’Hara’s dresses need mending and you could help save them.
The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas in Austin (United States) is planning an exhibit in 2014 to mark the 75 anniversary of the “Gone with the Wind” film.
To do so, it must first mend the famous gowns worn by Vivian Leigh who portrayed the temperamental Scarlett O’Hara in 1939.
Thirty-thousand dollars are need to restore five gowns, buy protective housing and custom mannequins for the 2014 exhibit.
Donations are being accepted by the Centre directly on their website.
The campaign launched in Texas is trying to convince potential donors they can “help save history,” (Hollywood history that is).
