Sneak Peek: Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design

We’ve always thought the best part of our biannual costume design exhibitions is the opportunity to examine up-close the thoughtful details incorporated into each garment. Costume Designers, particularly in television, work so quickly, and yet they produce incredible ensembles week after week – some of which are only shown for a few seconds on screen. In advance of the public opening of the Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition on Tuesday, August 22, we’re giving you a hint of the beautiful garments featured in this year’s show! We look forward to hearing which costumes you loved best when you visit; make sure to share your photos with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #FIDMMuseum and #ArtofCostumeDesign. Now, here’s a sneak peek of just a few of our favorite designs…
