Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising’s 19th Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design

From “Burlesque”, designed by Michael Kaplan

On Saturday, Rob and I attended FIDM’s Art of Motion Picture Costume Design opening night event with Rob’s bro Steve and his wife Reba. I really love this event. They do such a good job at making the evening feel really fancy and decadent but casual and relaxed at the same time.

A couple of years ago we were able to cover the event for Threadbanger and interviewed Jacqueline West who designed the costumes for Benjamin Button and Danny Glicker who designed the costumes for Milk. What an honor and an inspiration!

Here are some of my favs from this year’s event…

"Alice in Wonderland" costumes designed by Colleen Atwood. Check out the Interview we did with Colleen about her work on Sweeney Todd.

"Alice in Wonderland" costumes designed by Colleen Atwood. It was SOOOO great to see the Mad Hatter costume in person! Not only because Johnny Depp wore it (UMMMM HELLO!) but also because it was one of my favorite costumes to ever take a shot at making on Threadbanger. I love how our version came out. At the time, the movie wasn’t out yet and we only had a couple of leaked reference pictures to go by. Seeing it up close was quite a treat. Look at the embroidery on the leg! Love.
