Introduction Why does Hollywood always buzz with excitement when the Academy Awards are around the corner? It is partially because of the glamorous stars that will be seen and the thrill of maybe seeing our predictions come true.
Introduction There is also excitement because of the gossip that will swirl and the fine clothes the stars will robe themselves in. Ah! Clothes, costumes, make-up and all the fine details—they are what is truly fine about what Hollywood produces, and t his attention to detail is something we all should have a chance to see and be inspired by.
History of the FIDM For any students interested in The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising it is a co-educational, specialized, private college with campuses in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Orange County, California.
History of the FIDM FIDM students have complete access to a 10,000 piece garment collection which consists of significant clothing from the late 19 th century to the present day, including theater and film costumes. Students are allowed to handle and examine the construction, trim, styling, fabrics, and period details of the collection.
Costume Exhibit Examples The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Museum Foundation was founded in 1978 to serve the college and the community. The Los Angeles Gallery annually presents "The Art of Motion Picture Costume Design," an exhibition of Academy Award nominee costumes.
Costume Exhibit Examples The present exhibit includes costumes from twenty different 2001 films, including all of the Oscar nominees for Best Costume: Moulin Rouge , Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone , Lord of the Rings , Zoolander , and Planet of the Apes .
Costume Exhibit Examples In addition to costumes, the museum displays props from several of the films, such as magic wands from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone , the fabulous necklace from Moulin Rouge , and the ape masks from the Planet of the Apes .
Map to the Institute The FIDM is located at 919 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90015. Take the 9 th Street exit off the Harbor Freeway. 9 th Street is a one-way street. Go 4 blocks to the FIDM parking entrance. Parking is also available in the surrounding public lots. (213) 624-1200 ext. 2241
Dates, Times, and Prices The exhibit will be showing until May 3rd from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and it’s absolutely FREE to view it. The FIDM wants to attract people to the wonder and possibilities of the professions it specializes in. Also, if our group is too large to enter all at once, the campus has beautiful green areas to hang out in while students await their turns to enter the exhibit’s magic.
Number of Students and Chaperones At this point we are anticipating taking all of Ms. McQueen’s English 3 classes (a total of 60 students) and 3 chaperones (one for each 20 students) plus 2 bus drivers. That’s a total of 65 people.
Conclusion The attention to detail in the costumes in the FIDM exhibit is awe-inspiring, especially since, though what a movie camera captures astounds us, the detail it can not see in this case is nothing short of incredible. The men and women who made these costumes must have had a love of their craft and excellence that can inspire all of us.
