For those of you that have been following Filthy, you know that I go to FIDM in downtown LA. FIDM has a museum where they feature different exhibits throughout the year. Right now they have an exhibit with movie costumes from 2009’s most memorable films. I hope to be involved in the Wardrobe/Costume Department for Movies and Television so I jumped on this fast and was there the first day it opened. I couldn’t believe how many costumes they actually had ( over a 100) on display. There’s costumes from The Young Victoria ( including that tiara), Nine ( which was one of my favorite displays), Julie & Julia, Where the Wild Things Are,Sherlock Holmes, The Soloist, The Dark Knight, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, A Single Man,Inglorious Basterds ( another favorite of mine)Public Enemies, and The Duchess ( who won an Academy Award for Best Costume in 2009). Mona May, a FIDM graduate and one of my favorite Costume Designer designed Aliens in the Attack looks even though it is a digital movie. She is responsible for styling two of my favorite movies Clueless and Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion. Those costumes forever will stay in my mind and inspire me throughout my career.Another cool fact is the mannequins are to scale models of the actors who wore the costumes..loves it. The exhibit is free, located at the FIDM Campus in Downtown LA and it will be open till March 29th so you better see it before it’s too late.
