This past Saturday, I had the honor of attending the Opening Night Reception of the 25th Art of Motion Picture Costume Design Exhibition at FIDM Museum. The exhibit salutes the creativity of costume designers for film with a museum show of outstanding costumes and Oscar nominated designs. There are over 100 costumes from 20+ films showcased in this year's exhibition, including Oscar-nominees for Best Costume Design "Allied", "Fantastic Beast and Where To Find Them", "Florence Foster Jenkins" and "La La Land".
