The Art of Fashion in Television: FIDM's Annual Gala

Downton Abbey
Saturday, July 28th Emmy-nominated designers from such primetime hits as American Horror Story, Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire came together to celebrate and talk costumes at the 6th Annual Outstanding Art in Television Costume Design gala.

The night kicked off with a preview of the costumes at the FIDM Museum & Galleries in DTLA.  Having never been to the FIDM Museum, I was more than excited to find a substantial array of amazing designs with no plexiglass in between. Love this night already.  

Here are a few of my favorite displays...
Magic City
American Horror Story
Pretty Little Liars

Venturing outside, we were met with the beautiful landscape of Grand Hope Park, not to mention a plethora of treats, drinks and mingle-worthy guests from the television and fashion industries.

Ruth Myers (Hemingway & Gellhorn), Eduardo Castro (Once Upon A Time) and Chrisi Karvonides (American Horror Story) were honored by Television Academy Chairman/CEO, Bruce Rosenblum for their outstanding craftsmanship.  They and FIDM Museum guest curator/costume designer, Mary Rose are pictured below.


The Outstanding Art in Television Costume Design exhibit at the FIDM Museum is FREE & now open to the public until October 28, 2012.  Visit Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm and be sure to see who wins it all at this year's Emmy Awards Sept. 23, 2012.  GO! It is more than worth the trip.
