The FIDM Museum is proud to introduce our newly-launched YouTube channel, home of our extensive collection of video content.
Catwalk History slideshow from the 2018 exhibition Capturing the Catwalk: Runway Photography from the Michel Arnaud Archive, now available to watch on YouTube
Start your viewing with Curator Kevin Jones’ introduction of the FIDM Museum Collection, then browse the playlists to find videos organized by categories, such as Fashion Photography or Art of Motion Picture Costume Design. Videos in these playlists will take you behind-the-scenes of our exhibitions with additional educational content like slide shows, interviews, and gallery tours. For example, you can now take a virtual walk-through of our 2011 exhibition FABULOUS! Ten Years of FIDM Museum Acquisitions – keep your eye out for our beloved Alexander McQueen Peacock Dress!
You can also find the full-length documentary that accompanied our 2009 exhibition High Style: Betsy Bloomingdale and the Haute Couture, featuring interviews with Oscar de la Renta, Hubert de Givenchy, James Galanos, Adolfo Sardina, and more.
Catch up on our signature social media series, FIDM Museum Unboxings and Collection Conversations; all episodes will now be available on both Instagram and YouTube. Discover crafty new skills from Collections Manager and Mount Maker Carolyn Jamerson in her online tutorials (including the technique behind her famous paper wigs).
