Hugo. The Artist. W.E. These are just a few of the movies whose costumes will be on display at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM)in Downtown Los Angeles. This completely FREE exhibit runs from Feb 14 to April 28, 10am to 4pm, Tuesdays thru Saturdays. I have visited the exhibit in past years, and it is well worth the drive downtown.
This year promises to have more than 100 costumes from no less than 20 films including all five nominated in the Oscar’scostume design category. Supported by the Motion Picture of Arts and Sciences, the movie studios and even film stars themselves have generously loaned out the wardrobe pieces for this beautiful exhibit.
If you loved the films of 2011, make sure you get to FIDM before April 28. And remember it’s FREE!
