17th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibition @ FIDM

The popular exhibition features actual costumes from the previous year's most memorable films. This year, the costumes are from a host of fabulous movies, including The Dark Knight, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt, The Duchess (pictured above), and so many more--over 22 movies in all!

Being a costume designer AND an alum of FIDM, this exhibit is naturally one of my favorites in LA. It is always so fun to see the costumes up close and personal. It opened to the public Wednesday January 29th and will continue to run until March 29th.

The exhibition is free to the public. Group Tours are available. Visit the FIDM Museum & Galleries online for more information.

When: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays through March 29.

Where: FIDM Museum & Galleries at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, 919 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles.

Information: 213-624-1200, ext. 2224.
