Costume pros flaunt works of art

FIDM showcases designs from over 25 films

It seems natural that L.A.’s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising would play host to an exhibition celebrating the art of movie costume design each Oscar season.

Fifteen years ago, FIDM, with the help of the Costume Designers Guild, launched a showcase for the latter’s work.

Modest show was such a success that growth was inevitable, and this year, FIDM exhibits costumes from more than 25 films, including all of the 2006 Oscar-nominated works. (The exception is “The Devil Wears Prada,” whose costumes were auctioned for charity.)

Also on display are Colleen Atwood’s Oscar-winning costumes from last year’s “Memoirs of a Geisha.”

Show is open to the public through April 5 (Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.) at the FIDM Museum & Galleries in downtown Los Angeles.
