Los Angeles: FIDM – Oscar-Nominated Costumes on Display

Costumes designed by Jenny Beavan for The King's Speech (FIDM)

Get a first-hand look at this year’s Oscar-nominated costumes at the 19th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibit, on view now through April 30, 2011, at the Los Angeles Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). Original costumes from over 20 feature films released in 2010 are on display, along with nearly 100 other movie costumes. You’ll see prominent examples of the intricate attention to detail by some of the most note-worthy costume designers in the movie industry. Such designers include past Oscar winners Collen Atwood (Chicago – 2002), Sandy Powell (The Aviator – 2004), and Jenny Beavan (A Room With A View – 1986) – all who are competing for this year’s Costume Design award.  Collections on display include ravishing outfits worn by Christina Aguilera in “Burlesque”, Helen Mirren's Elizabethan dress from "The Tempest” and outstanding period pieces from “The King’s Speech.” Other ensembles showcased at the exhibition include those from “Alice in Wonderland”, “Clash of the Titans,” “The Kids are All Right,” “True Grit,” and many more. 

The exhibition is free to the public and open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The FIDM Museum & Galleries will be closed April 22 through April 25 for Spring Recess.
