An exhibit showcasing costumes from multiple films is being held at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles. FIDM has been hosting exhibits showcasing the work of film costume designers for 22 years as an annual event. According to the OC Register, “Art of Motion Picture Costume Design” features over 100 costumes from 22 different “style-laden” films, including:
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” sci-fi and action hero hits with fantastical costumes such “Man of Steel,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “Thor: The Dark World” and “Pacific Rim” and movies with imaginary worlds such as “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and “47 Ronin.”
No details have been given as to any particular costumes that are on show, but judging from this photo, which was included in this article:
We can know for sure that Katniss’ stunning dress from the party at President Snow’s mansion is on display. It’s a beautiful piece of art, and it is only right that Trish Summerville (Catching Fire‘s costume designer, FIDM alumna and featured costume designer at the exhibit) is being recognised for her work on the film. The costuming in Catching Fire is gorgeous and every bit as spectacular as us fans hoped for, and she deserves all the praise she has received.
Entrance is free, and “quick” tours – which take place at 10AM on Saturdays – are $5 per person, so I would definitely suggest you check it out if you’re in the area! Free entrance PLUS the chance to look at amazing costumes?! Bit of a no-brainer, really! The exhibit is only on through to April 26, so try and see it ASAP! I wish I lived in LA – I would definitely go if I lived near there.
Let us know if you check it out; we would love to hear you stories about all the costume details – and not just from the Catching Fire costumes! There are a number of incredible films being showcased, and I’d love to be able to look at costumes (in detail) from any of them.
