Costumes of Downton Abbey, designed by Susannah Buxton
It was a great night last night, Frocktalkers! The 6th Annual Art of Television Costume Design exhibit opened at FIDM, and it was beautiful. The exhibit opens to the public on Tuesday, July 31st, and runs until October 20th. Represented in the exhibit are Emmy nominees Boardwalk Empire, American Horror Story, Once Upon a Time, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and many more! I took photos of all the costumes on exhibit and posted them on my photostream HERE for those of you who are out of town. However, if you are in LA, you really ought to swing by. It’s free, and it’s an awesome display of talent. Congrats to everyone involved in making this happen!!!
