Find this year's exhibit information <here>

Once again we (those of us living in Los Angeles) get a chance to see costumes from some of the most amazing films of the year. This marks the 13th year that the costumes have been displayed by the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.  They have filled the three rooms of their 10,000 square foot  Museum Galleries on the Park.
